Located in open country on a small hill among two or three large oak
trees. Three markers were legible, one found leaning against a tree and
the other two and possibly the remains of a fourth were broken and
scattered. The cement markers have suffered many years of decay, making
it difficult to read them.
The cemetery fronts the old Alex Griffin homeplace, who is believed to
have had two wives buried here as well as these children and probably
other members of the family.
