PILGRIMS REST CEMETERY: Unable to locate tombstone...may be underground if a flat stone. Somewhere on this old hill of Pilgrims Rest Cemetery are the graves of Jim Adkinson and his wife, Lizzie.

He had a marker as per the 1963 LDS survey. Probably under earth now. Death date only on the tombstone: Feb. 8, 1937 listed Tim Adkinson on the 1963 cemetery survey. The name Tim was probably a typo on the LDS survey.

NGL, committee person at Pilgrims Rest Cemetery, painted a block with name and added to show this person was actually buried within this cemetery. The block was added to the area with Poore, Mills and Fowler gravesites.
