  •  Notes 
    • This cemetery was surveyed in November 1958 by Mr. E. H. Hayes and Mrs. E. M. Richardson. Mr. Lester Thomas Rogers, Sexton of the Cemetery is due an honorable mention in connection with the survey of this cemetery. It is from his personal knowledge that many comments were added to the existing inscriptions thus enhancing the importance of this survey. Three days he took the Cemetery Plat and guided the surveyor from plot to plot and grave to grave explaining details not visible. The identity of unmarked graves by him was most remarkable. Lester Thomas Rogers born 1 January 1916, Jackson County, Florida. A son of Relious Aaron Rogers (born 14 Feb 1897 in Jackson Co., Fla.) and Vera Eugene Bodiford (born 10 Dec 1894 in Crenshaw Co., Ala.) Mrs. Lillie Hayes, widow of Mr. E. H. Hayes has graciously given her permission to post this information on the internet as long as Mr. Hayes is given credit for the research.
