Gallimore Family Cemetery is located in Silver Hill Township, four-tenths mile off Hwy 47 on Bethany Church Road. Property currently owned by Gustafson Family.

The original cemetery is a now a cow pasture - may contain as many as 25 graves with slate markers.

The original headstones of Ruth and Jesse were moved to outside the fence and lay flat near the road. Some difficulty in finding them.

Based on the 'generally accepted location' of Richard Wright, Sr. and Jr., it is possible that this site is also the cemetery for that Wright family. There are multiple sites indicated by large stones, but none specifically to indicate who they may be.

The picture of Ruth's headstone was taken in May 2009 by Shirley Varker Gragg.
