NOTE: There are about twenty graves with native stone markers. The stone wall around this cemetery was built by the slaves. They hauled the rock for the walls from the hillside behind the Yoachum home, loading it on sleds and
dragging it from the hillside to the present location. It is still in very good condition. The Yoachums thought much of their slaves. Behind the barn can be found evidence of about five slave cabins, for there are polk stalks and evidence of rotted logs which were said to have been the cabins. Some axes and other parts of farm emplements have been found. The George Yoachum family came from Illinois and settled this land in 1800.
