|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
"Miller Jim" Helton Cemetery is an old family cemetery. It is named for James "Miller Jim" Helton, the son of James & Frances "Frankie" McFarland-Helton. Those interred in this cemetery are the children and decendants of James & Frankie. Many of the headstones are old and difficult to read with the naked eye. The last person believed to be buried there was James Patrick Helton in 1948.
The cemetery is located on the road beyond the G. W. Helton Cemetery just off the Indian Creek-Gray Road in Knox County. Old records refer to this area as the "Old Cooper Farm." However, that land is currently owned by the Warfield family.
In 2006, the cemetery was overgrown with many sunken graves. However, descendants of James & Frankie Helton have since cleared it. Today, in 2010, a gravel road leads to the gravesites which are located toward the top of the hill.
