"This family cemetery was located east of Morgan Road and south of Tommeheton Creek (Training Area 12) in what was Tract C-344 owned by Joseph R. Crowder et al. in 1944 (see Table 1 and Figure 1). The cemetery is overgrown, but easily identifiable with an iron fence (Plate 15). This cemetery is marked as "relocated" on the 1944 map and
recorded on Godburn's list of graves moved to Butterwood Church where 3 individuals are listed: Martha Davis, A.D. Davis, and D. Woodland Davis (Godburn 1977: G-6). The exact location of this cemetery is known although a detailed field survey has not been conducted at the time of this report."
