Researched by Mrs. Winnie Payne & Mrs. Billie Douthitt and added to by Mrs. Maud Peoples.
Mr. Durant attempted to survey this cemetery in October 1982. He talked to Mr. Martin who owns the land where it is located. Mr. Martin told him that there is one grave marker, that of Hilly McDaniel.
Mr. Payne and Mrs. Peoples are deceased and Mrs. Douthitt’s whereabouts unknown. Therefore this listing can not be confirmed. It is reprinted because some one had reason to believe these people are buried here in unmarked graves.
2000 – There are three tomb stones and the cemetery is enclosed by a chain link fence, which looks to be about 30 feet by 40 feet. There is a sign on this fence that says William McDaniel Family Cemetery Dedicated May 1986, the cemetery was cleaned up at one time but it is starting to grow up with weeds and underbrush again.
