A short hike is required to reach this cemetery located 1/4 mile east of Briscoe on the north side of the road. It is visible from the road. This is another cemetery that should be visited in fall or early spring because of the weeds. It is a fairly large cemetery containing 182 names with dates from 1828 to 1917. The stone for Rebecca Davis had fallen face down and was almost impossible to turn because of its size. It took a lot of determination and ingenuity to finally turn this beautifully carved stone over. It is nearly six inches thick, four feet wide and five feet long. Many of the stones in this cemetery are no longer standing.
