Note:  There was survey done in 1937 by H. C. Field that indicated there were 11 graves in this cemetery:  "The family burying ground is about five hundred yards from the house, and is enclosed by a iron fence.  Same is not very well kept, and is in very bad condition today; most of the stone markers have fallen down and many excavations are exposed.  There are only eleven graves in this small burying ground.  No one lives in the old home today.  The only inscription that could be read is the following. Sacred to the memory of Ruth A. Infant daughter of S. S. and M. M. Hairston Died Oct. 6, 1854 “She exchanged the joys of earth for the joys of heaven”."
