Comments: The property where the cemetery is located has been sold and is being developed. The developer has built a new fence around the cemetery and is maintaining the cemetery. It is in excellent condition. It appears that this may have originally been a Poole cemetery. The oldest marked grave is that of Sallie (Cox) Poole, first wife of Newel B. Poole, who died in 1857. Apparently David Poole who died in 1863 of typhoid fever during was buried here next. A period of 18 years passed before the next burial, Samuel M Poole, in 1881. It is possible that there are some other graves unmarked or marked with field stones that have been lost over the years.
