This area was originally a settlement, settled about 1760 - 1770. A Barber family settled it. William Cone came from N.C. about 1770. He married one of the Barbers. The settlement was abandoned in the early 1880s. The last person buried there was Paul Cone, a Civil War soldier.
It is reported in records that someone with a metal detector went to this cemetery and dug up a grave and took an old Revolutionary War gun. Capt. William Cone had many children. One of his sons, Aaron, had a son named Aaron, who had a daughter, Anna. She married S.E. Groover. Their son, William Aaron, was the father of Francis Groover.
Dr. W.M. Cone, a descendant of this family said that Paul R. Cone's brother was also buried in this cemetery. He was John R. Cone. The brothers both died in the first battle of the Civil War at Fort Sumter.
