Recorded:  By Mary Collins Landin, on 30 Aug 1978
First Grave:  1840

Remarks:  This old family cemetery was totally unkept and overgrown when it was recorded the first time.  Since homes have been built on each side of it, it is now slightly cleaner but still unkept in 2005, and some additional gravestones were found that are listed here as well, in a second recording.  This is the cemetery of John Wise from Virginia, and his wife Judith Lacy, daughter of Noah and Eliza Mary Wilson Lacy of Virginia and later of Oglethorpe County, GA.  The recorder is the great great great great granddaughter of Noah and Mary Lacy.  John and Judith Lacy Wise were charter members of the Bethel (Utica) Baptist Church in 1829, and were the founders of what is known as the Wise Community on Fisher Ferry Duke) Road between Utica and the Claiborne County lines.  They were the parents of six children.
