Legend surrounds the first years of this burial ground. Local oral history relates that among the earliest graves are those of a slave called Willie Osborne and an unknown Native American. Members of the Stephens family, ambushed by Indians in 1854, are said to have been buried here in their wagon. The oldest marked grave is that of infant Polly Williams, interred in 1854 on land owned by W. W. Williams. A cemetery association was organized in 1960s. Many honored veterans of Confederate and U. S. Armed Forces are interred here. Fifteen graves were moved from the Bullion Cemetery in the 1970s when Lake Georgetown was formed. More than 240 graves were counted in 1997. (1998)
