(During the 1997 survey, this grave was at this location; however, it has now been moved to the newly established Martin Cemetery located on County Road 107 in Tishomingo.



*There are more than 300 graves in this cemetery, and there are many rocks with inscriptions that were no longer readable.

On a more personal note, I remember Mr. Mitchell Payne fondly. He was a very pleasing gentleman, always having something nice to say when he saw you. Mr. Payne lived to be about 100 or more years of age, and yes, he was always called "Unc."
