  • Notes 
    • John and Susan lived near her ancestral home on Jack's Creek. Their graves are marked with broken soapstone markers, according to Lloyd Bailey. John was too old to serve in the Civil War, so he stayed home and looked after the families of his brothers while they were gone to war.

      John and Susan suffered great tragedy during that time in the early 1860's. Six of their little girls died within a period of two weeks from Black Tongue Fever, two of them found dead in the same bed together. The children are buried in this cemetery in unmarked graves.

      John was a hunter, and is said to have killed the largest deer in the area after many of his neighbors had tried unsuccessfully to do so [8]
