|5793 Whittaker Rd.|
|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Area was know as 'Possum Trot'. The road sign at this intersection says Whittaker Road.
This is off of Phifer Mtn./Clouse Road off of route 70 off of interstate 40 at exit 291 going towards Montery. There is an Alpine Lodge that you can see from 40.
Thomas Jefferson Clouse Sr. and his first two wives are buried on Phifer Mountain at Possum Trot where the Possum Trot Church was and the Bumbalough School. There is also an infant child and rocks for unknown people. After talking to the woman who currently lives in the house, she said that the church has been moved one or two times. It was moved to the other side of Phiffer Mountain road at Whittaker Road. Nothing remains of the church except for a clearing in the woods where it used to be. I am unsure of where the old Bumbalough/Clouse School house used to be. The woman I talked to said that she used to go to the church and has lived there for 70 years, but had no knowledge of the school. The school is mentioned in the Putnam Co. Cemetery documentation.
