|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
The Richard Wright Family Cemetery [aka Gallimore Cemetery]has been identified as the Gallimore Cemetery [because the two headstones found there are located in Silver Hill Township, 4/10th mile off Highway 47 on Bethany Church Road.. There are approx. 25 gravesites in the cemetery. Most consistent with history is that Richard Sr. and Ann; Richard, Jr. and both of his wives - Nancy Morgan and Caroline Kittrell are buried there as well possible other family members believed to be buried there.
Only 2 headstones have been found at the cemetery site - that of Ruth Wright Gallimore and her husband Jesse Gallimore. The stones were removed were broken off years ago and the owner at the time had the stones removed outside the fence. Those gravesites are now lost to time. The cemetery is now long abandoned.
According to the Davidson County cemetery book, Primms and Hamiltons family members are buried there, but that is in error; they are found to be buried in other sites. Confusion also exists on which Gallimore sisters married whom. Able to clear up that confusion, if needed.
