Page 80, of the book "The Edgewood Story" published in 1978, states in part:
"Located on a tree covered slope on private land, it is usually referred to today as the Blair-Bundy Cemetery. In this cemetery rest the remains of these pioneers of Van Zandt. James Bundy died on this farm, and though his gravestone has not been located a the time of this writing, it is certain that he is buried there. Many of his family members are there: his son W. H. Bundy, Polly Blair Bundy (wife of W. H.) and many of his grandchildren. His daughter Martha married a D. Cartwright and there are Cartwright children buried there. Also there inside a wrought iron fence are Allen and Sindy Rilah Blair and their son, James Blair."
