    Confederate Marker (Large flat body-sized marker) which reads:WHEATONS CO...GA ARTY C.S.A.

There is an obviously sunken grave that very old family members (92 yrs. old in 1980's and a 72 yr. old also in the 1980's) have related that a MR. WHITEHEAD "was buried there a very long time ago". So that would have been a very long time ago, indeed. Unfortunately, the elders are now deceased so I have no one to question about who he was, etc. Perhaps a friend, a worker, someone far away from home with no family.
