JOHN SMITH CEMETERY
Carver's Creek Township
This cemetery was originally surveyed in 1948 by the DAR. It was again surveyed 1967 by Evelyn Smith
accompanied by Allan Rinne and his mother-in-law, Mrs. C. Douglas Hall, the owner of the land. Today
the land is owned by the Allan Renne family. In January 2005, Allan Rinne and I, Robert Butler, went
to the site and could find nothing remaining. No stones or bricks. Some years back, the then owner of
the land hired a crew to clear the pasture land on the river and we suspect they just didn't see the
stones and pushed them all into a pile. The gravestone data and information listed below are from the
original 1948 DAR survey. Resurveyed Sep 2005 by Robert McLemore Butler.
The geodetic coordinate is: N 35.1765° W -78.7386°
