|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Lamar County, Alabama
Number 174 on the 2002 Cemetery Map of Lamar County.
This graveyard contains only one formal tombstone. The owner recalls that at one time there were 4 or 5 gravestones, and that the only names were Hays. There appear to be three or four graves marked by field stones in a row beside the inscribed stone, and others identifiable by depressions in the ground and field stone markers. One grave is located about ten yards north and west of the others. Unlike the others, it is oriented north and south.
Directions: About 8 miles west of Vernon, turn south off Hwy. 18 onto Prospect Road for 0.7 miles, then north onto Hopper Hollow Road for another 0.7 miles. The cemetery is located in woods behind a house on the property of Mrs. Audie Richards. Request permission of the owner before going to the site.
