THE MOST BEAUTIFUL COUNTRY-FAMILY CEMETERY that Helen and I have ever
seen. There are two distinct sections to this cemetery. The Old Section is the WILLIAM THOMPSON and allied families. William Thompson being born 1809, died 1870 and is the oldest marked grave in that section.

The New Section is the EVERIDGE SECTION with only one burial there.
Ronald Joe Everidge, Sr. "Big Daddy Rabbit". We met his wife, who now
owns the Rabbit Ridge Aerial Farm and I feel sure she is responsible
for the care and design of this cemetery. It is quite a tribute to
those buried there.

The Rock-Fence, the distance to the dirt road in front of the cemetery.

Just inside the Entrance of the Rock Fence. It looks like a well maintained park.

It has trees, shrubs, blooming flowers and the normally used cement or granite slab is made of the same rocks as the fence. I think they are native to the area.
