From Eden Baptist Church in Griffithsville, take Sugar Tree Road beside the church. Follow the road until you can branch off to the right onto Sycamore. Follow Sycamore until you can make a right onto Big Laurel Creek Road. Follow Big Laurel to the very end. There will be a stop sign and you have to choose left or right. Go left and then make an immediate left into what looks like a driveway. It will go up a hill (which is quite rough at times). Smith cemetery is at the top of the hill.
The inscriptions listed here are abbreviated versions of the actual text on the headstones. Notes at the bottom are either my own or those from the last transcription done by Lucy Bell in the late 1990's. All military markers will be noted with † at end of entry. If I have estimated a birth date then I will denote it with cDOB (calculated date of birth).
I walked and read this cemetery in December of 2004.
