Yes
Yes, it is for sure a prison cemetery. My mother was an inmate and died while there and we did not have the money to bury her anywhere else. I do not know any interesting info about the place though. Good luck on your search!

Capt. Joe Byrd Cemetery
Hello!

First of all thanks for your great work. It is a huge help, and I'm not sure people always stop to say THANKS.

I'm interested in Capt. Joe Byrd (a.k.a. Peckerwood Hill)Cemetery. My hunch is that it's a prison cemetery, at least in part. And the list of 'famous residents' seems to confirm that. Moreover, my distant relative buries there (Dale Pound) was reputed to have died in prison, so this would seem to confirm that fact.

Just wondering if you could confirm my hunch and shed any light on what could be an interesting (albeit sad) bit of history.

Thanks in advance.
