|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
The Bright Cemetery or Bright Family Cemetery no longer exists. It is known that there were at least four Bright family members buried here. Elcana (Alcane, Elcany, etc) was the first to move to this area from Delaware. His wife, Elizabeth "Lizzie" Thomas came with him, as did their son William Thomas Bright. They were buried here, as was William's first wife, Keziah Thorn Bright.
There may have been others, but the headstones have not been found. In time, other records may establish who they may be.
The description given by the person who took this photo in about 1945 stated this about the cemetery. It is -
1/2 mi. E. from Osage on Rt. 7 to R.R. shops; S. to Miller Hill. Cemetery lies 1/4 mi. S. W. on ridge. Graves marked by granite slabs, but condition of the cemetery, which was fenced by a broken wire fence, was "very poor."
