This grave is out in the middle of the woods just slightly off a 4 wheeler trail. There are a couple of trees (maybe 20-30 years old) that have pushed up through one side of the rectangular stone perimeter of the grave. There are also remnants of a very old rusty fence in patches that signify that someone owned the plot or lived nearby and also an old railroad bed about a mile away that has been long gone. Other than that it is just woods.
The grave actually very close to Big Fir Cemetery.
After looking for quite a while in this secluded area we were about to give up when we came across the grave of Thomas Matthew Cranford. The gentleman that guided me to it was relieved to see that someone had placed metal rods and wire around the grave, which was originally marked by a flat slate of rock with inscription and a rectangular placement of rocks. I have a picture of the slate rock marker which I can send if you like.
The gentleman that led me to the grave site said that there had been another smaller slate stone beside Mr. Cranford's stone that had marked the grave of a 9 year old that had died of a rattlesnake bite. He did not remember the name on that stone, the gender or the dates. The gentleman said that he noticed that this stone had been removed prior to the last time he saw this grave about 5 years ago.
