Photographs on this page Paulette Johnston

Compiled by Lillian H. Harley, Pattie W. Heaton, Lillian D. Kizer
Location: Southwest of Indian Field Church on dirt road west of US Hwy 15.  (See amended directions below)

Reported by Mr. Lewis D. Kizer. Shown by Mr. Peter Pendarvis.

Mr. Earl Wagers told us that the Jacksons owned the land when the cemetery was founded. Miss Eula Kizer said two Kizer Children were buried there, which is believed to have been Dave and Elizabeth Kizer's son and daughter. The land bounding the cemetery was owned at one time by Mr. Dave Carn, but at present time Mr. James Infinger owns the adjoining land beside the cemetery. Mr. Peter Pendarvis led us to this old burying ground which is completely grown up, showed us the only remaining broken tombstone, and showed us the spot where he said Bunch Jackson was buried with no tombstone. From the gravestone there, the cemetery was established in 1890 or before. Lillian D. Kizer
