CLARK FAMILY CEMETERY

Drive 4.6 miles west from Hwy 15 in Richton, turn right on Leonard Clark Rd. Continue for 3.1 miles. The cemetery is off the road to the right just after Linda Creek.


Copied by Cindy Wines Clark (wife of Gerald Albert Clark) and photographed by her son, Brian Davis Clark, March 2006. Fencing around cemetery has suffered damage from hurricanes coming through the area.

No particular order was taken to record the precise location of each grave so have used the photographs to assemble those stones adjacent to one another.
