I visited this cemetery in 1997, and went back this July to re-copy the
headstones as some of the dates did not check with the cemetery book.  I

I started on the left side of the cemetery and copied that side from the
front back, I then started at the back and worked to the front of the right
side.  My cousin took me to the church and explained the relationships he

The name below was included in my typed records of the first trip to the
Mars Hill cemetery but was not copied during the last trip.  I can't find my
original records so don't know if this was copied the first time and missed
the last trip, or if he belongs in a different cemetery.  He is not included
in the cemetery book.
