owns the farm where the cemetery is located. The area is very rugged
mountainous and remote. The far is on the north-east side of the
mountain behind the farmer's house. There are supposed to be Civil War graves. Some are said to be children killed during the Civil War. Sam William's mountain appears only on topographical maps.
