Cemetery notes and/or description:
n the Probate records of Jesse Maddox a warranty deed (Book R, page 60, Vernon County Records) selling a large portion of the original homestead to Aaron Dillion on 20 June 1869, cites "a graveyard containing one half acre of land, then being used, will be reserved and exempt from the sale." The grave site has been rediscovered in a field about 1/2 mile off the road by this author and contains six unmarked graves and one marked grave with the headstone name of Austin. This site had long been forgotten but recorded in the cemetery records of the county as the Batts Cemetery after a landowner in later years. A title search showed that it has not been mentioned in any subsequent deeds thereafter. One of the graves is very prominent and is outlined by several large stones around its' perimeter. It is definitely an adult grave. Since the known dates of death for Jesse and his son William T. and his son in law Robert M. Curry are prior to the date of sale of this land it is safe to assume that they are buried in this cemetery since it was part of their lands. cited from Ron Brothers
