This cemetery is located on the right side of the road between the rock church and the rock school house which are not being used as of October 23, 1983.  The church was, at one time, a Presbyterian Church pastored by Rev. J. P. Lester.  Rev. J. P. Lester is buried in this small cemetery.  This cemetery is located on the original land homesteaded by Jack Potter.  The Sgt. Emory Cole is buried in this cemetery  and is the great grandson of Jack Potter.  Emory Cole was killed in World War #2 at the "Battle of the Bulge".  There are five visible unmarked graves here.  It is believed that some of these unmarked graves are the children of the Liles and Tatum families who were residents of this area, at one time.

Please visit the Polk County Library.  There is a genealogy section at the library.  Or, check www.FindaGrave.com as the Polk County Genealogy Society (Mary L Broderick)  is attempting to put all of this information on the FindAGrave site along with the Markers for the Graves.  It is a massive undertaking.
