|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
A long forgotten cemetery located on the Brushy Mountains in an uninhabited area. It took over two hours to walk down to the cemetery, the day it was finally found.
Many attempts were made to locate this cemetery. Years were spent tracking down the cemetery from death records, deeds and talking to people in the area, of which no one knew anything about it.
Then I was put in touch with a Barnette lady, who as a child had lived there for years. Although now elderly, she had a good memory. We shared many phone conversations over the next few years. Thanks to Mary Barnette Harrington, I was able to find my ancestors homeplace and cemetery. She has now passed away, but I will always remember that wonderful lady.
