On the Roach farm 1 mile west of Hwy 127 on the Glensboro Road (Hwy 44). About 200 yards away on the south side of the road,
enclosed by a stone wall. Cemetery recorded and photographed September 24, 2005; and the transcription compared with one done in 1947
and included in ‘Family Graveyards in Anderson, Mercer and Washington Counties’.

There are 31 stones that are either readable or that can be understood given the earlier transcription.
A few headstones are entirely unreadable; and the back half of the cemetery contains several fieldstone markers and/or broken stones.
It is evident that down trees and brush have been cleared from this half of the cemetery;
and given that 3 of the stones not listed on the 1947 transcription
are in this half it is possible that at the time of the earlier transcription it was too overgrown to find the stones.
