|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Burial grounds of Charles Leason BYRN and Temple Coleman BYRN Families, who migrated to Indiana in 1806 and 1809 respectively. They were born in Rowan Co.,NC, sons of Charles and Ann Byrn who lived near Salisbury, NC. Charles Leason BYRN was born in 1777. His wife, Anna CLODFELTER (Virginia Dutch) came with him from North Carolina.
Since the BYRN Pioneer Cemetery is on Leason's farm, it is no doubt that the burial place of him and his wife Ann, and perhaps as many as 20 or more of the BYRN family members are interned in unmarked graves.
The BYRN Pioneer Cemetery is located ½ miles north of Brynville on the high east bank of Corn Creek beside Indian Bluff Road. Leason's mill site was in the flat below the cemetery. His cabin stood about 1/5 of a mile north of the mill, beyond the cemetery, on the ridge above the big spring. No burials were made here until sometime after 1806. The last grave on record in this old cemetery is that of Temple Cole (Known as Rogers). He was born Nov. 27, 1809 and died Sept 19, 1885.
