Smyrna Presbyterian Cemetery, Part B

Submitted by Bonnie Evans.
Part B of Smyrna is just downhill from the larger section which is enclosed in the fence (Part B is unfenced). A number of the tombstones in this section appear to be homemade concrete, and are somewhat more difficult to read simply because of their rougher surface. Completed 12 May 2003 by Bonnie Evans.
