      Canvassed by Bonnie Breedlove, Rupert and Goldie Latta, Summer 1996. Updates and notes by Joyce Tunstall Harris in July 2014.

      The land the cemetery is on was originally owned by John B. Tunstall (b. 24 Jul 1792 - d. 16 Oct. 1862). He is the one who bought the land and turned it into a farm (some say a plantation). His grave is the second oldest in the cemetery. The oldest is Abraham Spencer who committed suicide in 1849, making him the first person to be buried there. Mr. Spencer was related through marriage to John B. Tunstall, thus the reason for his burial on the land. Other early graves are also John B. Tunstall's immediate family members. Later on, the daughter of John B. Tunstall, Margaret Tunstall, married a Sears and from that point, the cemetery was called the Sears Cemetery.
