Our thanks to Annette Ginn Roebuck for the contribution of this cemetery listing.

On Gum Swamp Road about 1.5 miles from the church on the right is a small fenced in cemetery. Before I found this cemetery, I pulled away from the church cemetery stopping at Gum Swamp Church Road. Should I turn left or right. Right would take me home. I didn’t know the territory to the left. I tried to turn right but a force turned me left and I connected with these wonderful people. Husbands and wives that loved each other only to lose a beloved wife to complications of childbirth and a few weeks, months lose the beloved babe. Marry a second time to fill a void. I can’t let the souls be lost to modern farming equipment. May they never stop connecting with me. I will search for them as long as I feel their presence as I walk cold dusty fields when I see a group of trees or a space that looks like someone is there. I will go, listen to the words on grave markers as they tell me their secrets.. and share them with you. Don’t you feel that tingling? They’re connecting with you, too….
