|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
According to a neighbor, this cemetery was deeded to the State of Florida. In its day, it was 'full' of folks, but over the years it has been vandalized and there has been a lot of thievery. A book called "Norwalk" "The Story of an Old Village and Community in the Ocala National Forest 1870 - 1900" by Jess G Davis has some very interesting history in its 16 pages.
The 'convicts' come down every few months or so and clean up the place. There is a lot of thick leaf matting. Upright stones were not hard to see, but there maybe some stones lying flat that were not found. Several dips in the earth were seen as well.
The names without marker pictures were listed in above book. I added them for genealogy purposes.
