This cemetery is 5.5 mi NE of Walton on Johnson Creek Rd., on the Mack Kelly farm.

It is in an area of two cedar trees, is overgrown and logging road has been put in beside it, there are mounds of dirt piled on what I am sure is part of this cemetery, could only find 9 stones and base of the only remaining headstone.

This cemetery was established c.1850 as a slave burial ground, but later was used as a community burial ground by white people. It is 1/4 acre in size, with no restrictions as to type and placing of markers.

It is not fenced or not landscaped and the condition is poor, the area is in use as pasture. Lots are not marked, graves marked by monuments and field stones. The lots are not for sale, and no burial records were kept. It is no longer in use as burial ground, only stone dated 1854. Marked graves 1, unmarked graves, 27 or more.

I found this cemetery in October of 2007 and attempted to photograph it again Jul 20, 2008. I then added info from WPA reading of December 1928.
