Note: Mr. Verge Mann, age
94, says that in this cemetery is buried Charles Curren Johnston and one or more
of the Merritts. We observed that many, a dozen or more, sandstone markers are
placed in two rows. Very close to the old road bank there are old bricks, the
remnant of a wall built around a grave or graves. I remember when I was a child
that the bricks were very visible at the high edge of the east bank of the road
and that they were falling into the road bed then.
