This week we will report on 4C. There are several unknowns in this section. There are also more old headstones and markers that are very close to unreadable.

A very old funeral marker is laying in the back of this section that says “The Hombach’s”. Does anyone remember this family? In this row we also have Sample Brown (1872-1915) and Alice A. Brown (1880-1962).

Alphie M. Caperton (June 17, 1875-Jan. 21, 1928); D.W. McNatt, has a confederate flag, (July 30, 1816-May 14, 1877—dates difficult to read); Elizabeth A. McNatt (May 12, 1822-Mar. 13, 1894—dates difficult to read); Almon Haywood (Nov. 5, 1878-Jan. 12, 1883); James Nathan Haywood, son of JM and MJ Haywood, (April 3 to May 22, 1890); Hazel M. Wriker (1894-1970); John Harry Sanford (Oct. 19, 1915-Mar. 16, 1980); in 4B Marjorie D. Sanford (Mar. 17, 1917-Jan. 17, 1994).
