These photos were taken 20 Sep 2002. There were 3 rows of graves in this cemetery, with at least 2 unmarked graves and at least 12 others marked only with fieldstones. Family lore states that there is a Jake Riddle, son of Billy & Lucy Riddle also buried here but we did not find a marker for his grave.

Billy & Lucy Riddle buried here are the parents of Sarah E. King.
