Two surnames from a family cemetery now in a farmer's pasture plus one surname from a death certificate. The cemetery probably used to be in a copse of trees at the top of a slight hill. These four stones are worn and broken. Other stones could be buried by 140 years of tree and dirt debris. The two families shown here were joined together on 1 Dec 1857 when Mary Baker married David Kendal. There are many Bakers in the 1860 census, including Burton, 53, N.C. and wife Mary C., 63, VA. Probably no Kendals.
