Surveyed and contributed by Catherine McNeill

"Many years ago I was taken to this cemetery by my late father-in-law, who was the son of the Sallie McNair McNeill listed here. I guess you would say it was near Laurel Hill, and not too far from the old McNair place, where the mill was. I will try to get better directions if I can, it was hidden in woods then."
