Reported by Mr. Lewis D. Kizer. Shown
by Mr. Peter Pendarvis.
Mr. Earl Wagers told us that the Jacksons owned the land
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
land beside the cemetery. Mr. Peter Pendarvis led us to this old
ground which is completely grown up, showed us the only remaining
tombstone, and showed us the spot where he said Bunch Jackson was
with no tombstone. From the gravestone there, the cemetery was
in 1890 or before. Lillian D. Kizer
