Search Dickson-Callaghan Cemetery:

This is a cemetery on private land that was started in the early 1800s. It is not the same cemetery as the one labeled 'Callaghan-Dickson Cemetery' in FindAGrave. (The one marker picture under that other cemetery is definitely NOT in this Dickson-Callaghan Cemetery.)

The attached 'photo' shows the relative placements of the grave markers and info on marker engravings. Photos of markers with useful information that have been attached to individual FindAGrave memorials are shown in Bold in the 'photo'. The square symbols with an X are short concrete pillars that mark out the area of the graves. The entire area was once surrounded by a wire fence that is in disrepair, but the area is obviously being maintained by local residents, many of whom are relatives. The graveyard is covered in vinca minor, which forms a dark green carpet year round and blooms blue in the early spring.

One of the markers is eroded to the point that no information is readable. This FindAGrave posting is meant only to preserve the information that is currently readable and was posted by a descendant of the occupants.

The small stone with J?W may be for Julia E Callaghan Wise, FAGM#174287680, but the center initial is now unreadable.
