RE: # 48401155 Avarilla Jeffery Dillard
Yes, there are definately more graves in that cemetery. I have been meaning to go back. There are tombstone bases left, but the stones themselves are missing. Probably due to the fact that it is in a field, with cows, and probably most of the remaining stones lie beneath the ground. If so, they would, again probably, be well preserved, if we could find them. Of very historical significance as well I'm sure. We would have to get landowners permission to delve a little deeper, but she seemed like a very nice lady. When asked what she knew about it, she said "Culps and Dillards are buried there". Don't know about the "whitehouse" reference, haven't looked into it, maybe a family farm? But in early years, the opposite side of the river was off limits from 1817 to 1828 when it was Cherokee Land. SO, many early burials would have been on the Izard county side. Feel free to email me personally, and I will give you anything else I have, or can find!
