Transcription by Sarah Loy

This is a very well kept & clean little cemetery.
"My grandfather was Charlie Rogers, grandmother was Cora Rogers Hill. From my understanding, my grandfather and Mr. Killingsworth were extremely close friends and when my grandfather passed, our family did not have a place to bury him, so Mr. Killingsworth donated the front part of the cemetery to our family in my grandfathers memory. For many years, I have taken care of that cemetery, mowing, weedeating, and setting the tombstones back up after the neighbors cattle would get loose and trample it. I still do all the care taking of this cemetery. I love this place. Very peaceful." ~~ Tammy Relford, granddaughter of Charlie & Cora Rogers. (April 2017)
