COMMENTS:  This graveyard is located off of Halls Ridge Road, South of Canaan. If you turn south on Halls Ridge off of Hwy. 62, when you get to the first curve, the graveyard is just about 1/4 of a mile south west in a grove of trees.

  • I completed this survey using the DAR list of 1941. I found a few mistakes which have been corrected.

  • At the bottom of the DAR list of 1941 was this note: Census of 1880; Jesse Lott, died, age 78 yrs. widower, born KY. Both parents born KY. Had lived here 66 yrs.

  • There were 20+ fieldstones that were unreadable.

KEY:  SS = Same Stone, W = Wife, S = Son, D = Daughter, y = year(s), m = month(s), d = day(s)
