Cemetery one on Scott's Valley Rd
This cemetery is the older Scott's Valley cemetery. I have found
very little history on it. The current Sexton said it was started

A chainlink fence is built around what has been preserved. It can
be reached by taking Hwy 291 west from Tum Tum for about one mile,
then turn right, or north, onto Scott's Valley Road. Continue on
for about 2 mi, then turn right onto West Riverview Lane for 1/4
mile. The cemetery lies off to the right in a farmer's field.

headstone of the Scott's.

It was originally homesteaded by Bryon F. Scott in the year of
Remaining in this cemetery are primarily Scott family members,
all of which were original settlers of Scott's Valley. I surveyed
this cemetery on May 20, 1999.
