      This abandoned cemetery has 24 legibly marked graves once enclosed by a wire fence. Canvassed by Dwight A. Evans (1980).

      Notes from a survey done about 1990: August 11, 1895 was a happy day for George E. and Mildred Castle Rigsbee. A little baby girl had been born to them. The happiness didn't last long because on August 25, 1896 their daughter Blanche had died, only one year old. They chose a nearby hillside to bury her on. They lost another child named Lee on February 15, 1900. He was only four months old. In 1904 George's father died, and in 1909 his nother died. Thus is the beginning of a family cemetery. Every grave in this cemetery is marked with an inscribed stone. One is inscribed only "Burline Mayton", no dates.
