Some of the local residents say that hunters took the stones from the presently unmarked graves and used them to build campfires. The earliest marker is that of Willie Williams - d. 7-24-1941; and the earliest birth date is that of Nathan Wyatt - b . 7-29-1902. There are 7 to 10 unmarked graves in Dayton Hill Cemetery, making a total of approximately 12 graves. The cemetery is no longer in use.
