NOTE 1:  The tombstones for John Thomas Hampton II and Ufan Williams Hampton were not originally in this cemetery.  They were about 100 foot east of the Jefferson Franklin Sanderson Cemetery on the corner of the feeder road connecting Aydlett Road [SR 1140] and Narrow Shore Road [SR 1137].
NOTE 2:  The death certificate for Leon Butler shows he was buried in the Parker Cemetery.  The earliest known tombstones in this cemetery are for the children of Thomas H. & Ruth Hampton Sanderson; therefore, it is being called the Thomas H. Sanderson Cemetery.
NOTE 3: The informant on the death certificate for James H. Saunders erred.  James' mother was Ruth (Hampton) Sanderson who died in 1888, not Ruth (aka Ufan) Williams.  Ruth/Ufan (Williams) Hampton was James H. Saunders' grandmother.
