In 2006 the old Gilmer cemetery, located at the junction of 62 & 80, was moved to within the bounds of the Union Cemetery in order for the expansion of ramps to be added to that junction. Many of the markers are just field stones.

A bit of history about the Gilmer cemetery and those buried there: Capt. James Gilmer, one of the early settlers of Adair county, a soldier during the Revolutionary war, being present at the Battle of Guilford, also present a the battle of the Cowpens.

James Gilmer was one of the early magistrates of Adair county, and one of the many prominent citizens who have lived here. Sarah, the wife of R. Gilmer is buried in the new location at Union cemetery.

The location given for the cemetery is its current location within Union Cemetery, not its original location.
