Tabernacle Cemetery
Submitted by Bonnie Tharpe

If you have any information on burials in Barbour County please send it to us.

Location:  Take 51 S. from Clayton ,turn left on Co.Rd. 43 go approx. 3 1/2 miles and its the second dirt road on the right named Vinson Rd. According to the 1991 Barbour Co. map this road comes to an end, it doesn't! Go past
an old house on the left that is falling, just a little further down you will bear off to the left on a small grass road and the cemetery is on the left. It is surrounded by an Iron fence. There is alot of brush in front of it. It is easier if you look for the open walkway before you get to it, so you can walk in that way. The walkway going up to it that is bordered by
what looks like fallen trees.
These are both good dirt roads for any vehicle. The cemetery is not in good shape, the fence looks as if at one time they had tried to repair it with iron porch railing.
I couldn't tell where the church had been, unless it was just before you get to the cemetery on the same side. Most of the stones are standing facing away from this road, so maybe the church, or another road was on the other
There are alot of rocks there for head and footstones, most you can tell they are babies, or children by size.
There are also several of unmarked graves, I think we counted 62 unmarked total, that included the ones that are marked only with rocks. When they are by some of the ones that have headstones I have noted them in the survey.

The mother & her babe here rest until the resurrection of the blest; At Christ's command they shall arise and reign immortal in the skies. This stone shall point her friends the way to meet her in eternal day; Shall cry, behold thy savior God, be cleansed by his redeeming blood.
Oh Husband, Mother, Father too, the narrow path of life pursue;
My Sisters, Brothers, faithfully be, until your face again I see.
