|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
This cemetery is located directly behind the former site of a house built about 1830 by David Emmitt Kelly. The house was sold out of the Kelly family in 1878. The house was demolished in 1977 and a modern house was built by the current landowners. The cemetery is still owned and maintained by the Kelly family.
About 1920, Messrs. D.E. Kelly, J.O. Kelly, and G.L. Kelly, brothers, undertook to reclaim and preserve the cemetery. They enclosed it with the present fence and, as there were many graves with no stones, they had a number of concrete markers made. They did the best they could to place these at the correct graves. The names were put on the markers, but they made no attempt to put dates on the markers and there may still be some unmarked graves.
