From Footprints 2000: This cemetery which is located on Leadmine Bend Road near C.C.C. Camp #448 in Sharps Chapel has been destroyed. It is said one of the C.C.C. boys, as a prank, removed Jessie's marker. It was replaced at a later time but cannot be found now.
The Union County Cemetery Association also purchased and placed a blue cemetery sign in the cemetery. It is now missing.
