Search Tison Family Cemetery:

It appears from the earlist date of death that the Tison Plantation Cemetery came into existance about 1804. No stones mark the graves of the early settlers in the Tison Plantation Cemetery but it may be assumed that they are buried on the plantation probably in this site.
It is recorded that the brick wall surrounding the cemetery was erected by Elizabeth Stafford Tison wife of John Tison II. In an Indenture made by Elizabeth Stafford on May 27, 1836, it states "also that the family burial ground, now enclosed by a brick wall fifty by seventy feet in width and length, situate on north east end of said plantation of the part called 'the old settlement', and represented on a plat, with a right of way to the same be and the same in perpetual reservation and not considered as part of the premises herein conveyed"
The cemetery contains 37 marked graves of the Tison family and their relatives of that era.
