Historial Marker: Once known as "South Bolton Cemetery," this is the final resting place of Mary Follis (d.1879), who was buried here during the ownership of James and Louisa Franks. Hers is the earliest marked grave. T. W. Bolton bought the land in 1879, and James Robert and Tennessee Caudle purchased it in 1883. Family matriarch Rebecca Clayton Caudle, widow of Mark Caudle, was buried here in 1886. Fannie Caudle (1877-1895), who died on her wedding day and was buried in her bridal dress, was the last person buried here. There are fifteen marked and more than 40 unmarked graves. Two of those believed to be interred in unmarked graves are Martha Elizabeth Caudle, who died in 1889 or 1890, and her granddaughter, Mamie Caudle. Descendants rediscovered the cemetery and restored it in 1997. (2000)
