Cemetery notes and/or description:
The location of this pioneer-era cemetery is primarily known from deed record descriptions made prior to the Civil War. The deed records describe it as being located north of Dry Creek in the northeast quarter of Section 18, Township 12, Range 4 East, St. Stephens Meridian. The property of Jonathan Anderson and that of his son Stephen Anderson adjoined one another at this point. Although this cemetery was marked by rough sandstone blocks into the 1990s, the stones have now been removed and the precise location lost. Likewise, the exact number of burials is unknown. There were at least four markers. It stood a few hundred yards to the rear of the White-Green-Hasty Log Dogtrot (circa 1846), which is still intact in 2013. The house is located on Marengo County Road 55, west of Vineland. It is presumed that the family patriarch, Jonathan Anderson, and matriarch, Mary Bishop Anderson, are both buried here.

Recorded in:
*Marengo County Deed Book H, pages 747-748. Stephen Anderson to James B. Anderson on February 9, 1842.
*Marengo County Deed Book I, pages 216-217. James B. Anderson to Samuel Wright on July 21, 1842.
*Marengo County Deed Book L, pages 380-382. Samuel Wright to Z.D. Thomason and then Z.D. Thomason to Henry C. White, both transactions on March 2, 1846.
*Marengo County Deed Book N, page 444. Henry C. White and wife Sarah to John Brantley on March 18, 1851.

-Jeffrey Reed, 5x great-grandson of Jonathan and Mary Bishop Anderson.
