I have writings from Mary Gordon Duffee, stories of strolling up the old "Tuscaloosa Road" past the homes of the McPhersons, Mr. Wittich, Mr. Mann and Mr. Shannon, and upon the summit of the hill, the homes of Dr. Estill, Isaac Hamilton, and Dr. Robinson.



















The location of this lost cemetery will have to remain a mystery. It's on private property and the land owner requested that I not publicize the location.


It's amazing just how many of these lost cemeteries are all so close to my home.


I have many more lost graves to find.
