*Note: the following information comes to us from J. A. Owens who has recently (Oct. 2005) corresponded with the great-granddaughter of Alexander Owens. She and her brother maintain the cemetery.

  • The stone marked "Baby Owens" is Nellie Owens born Aug 5, 1915 died Aug. 5,1915.
  • The stone marked "Grace Owens, June 8, 1887 July 5, 1925; Wife of Alexander Owens"; This grave has two occupants. Wiley Alexander Owens is buried with mother Grace. No mention of this on the tombstone; born 7-5-1925 died 7-5-1925.
  • The two unmarked slabs are thought to be slave children but could be Lafayette & Ammon Owens.
