|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Hayden Cemetery is a community church cemetery with approximately one hundred known burials dating from 1860 to the present. Commercial markers include a variety of marble and granite tablets, blocks and bevels. Other burials are marked with irregular fieldstone tablets, temporary funeral markers, cinder blocks, and there are numerous known and unknown unmarked burials. Family names represented here include Hayden, Haydon, Davidson, Mansfield, Garvin, Buford, and Bell.
The cemetery landscape is grassed and includes several large oak trees which have died. There is a central section, overgrown and covered with tree fall, which hides numerous unknown burials as well as the burial of James Hayden and his wife. There is a periwinkle undergrowth bordering the cemetery and periwinkle is the groundcover in the overgrown section. The tree line appears to demarcate the cemetery boundary, but there is at least one marked burial beyond the northern tree line. Remnants of a wire fence are also hidden in the underbrush to the North.
