Proof can be found on these cemeteries by checking the deed books or seeing the cemeteries, if possible.  These old pioneer cemeteries have been lost or abandoned, their locations lost in time and memory.  As new development, construction, and farming expands in the county, these old cemeteries have been or are in danger of being destroyed and no longer remembered.  There are untold numbers of old family burial plots and tomb stones out there in the woods, fields, and elsewhere that are unknown of today.    Hopefully, someday they may be found and restored.  Some are known only by the landowner or in family histories.
