|David Turner Tillman and Annie Fulcher Tillman Family Cemetery|
The following information was posted to the Person County mailing list on 16 Dec 1999 by Louise T. Overton. She has given permission to post it
Location: ¼ mile off of Morton-Pulliam Road, (old Harris-Pulliam Road) in the Olive Hill-City Lake area. Mailbox has the number of 1224 Morton-Pulliam Road. Take a dirt road which passes a white house, continue on just a short ways, cemetery is located on the left beside of the old TILLMAN homeplace. Now owned by William G. OAKLEY Jr. Cemetery is well cared for, no fence. May be a few unmarked graves here. Mrs Esther OAKLEY now deceased, said that the first grave here was that of a SOLOMON baby boy. No marker. Graves are scattered, some in rows. When I was a child, trees surrounded this cemetery. When I went back in 1970, Trayham MITCHELL, now deceased, owned this land and later cut down all the trees. He seemed to think there were graves in the woods. If so they have now been destroyed.
