100 yd N of residence 785 Old Wood-ville Hwy; 0.14 mi N of Summerwind Circle

A partial tombstone with some inscriptions remaining stands just three feet east of the graded roadway of Old Woodville Highway about 90-100 yards north of the address 785 and about 0.14 mile north of Summerwind Circle North. Cal Jamison of the historical society examined the inscription and read a date of death or birth but found no name. He also was unable to find apparent evidence of other graves in the young growth of pine and oaks that spreads east from the road. No local knowledge of a grave here is reported.

The gravestone evidently has been pushed and leaned over somewhat by roadwork in the past (it could possibly have been moved out of the route of the road to this edge). Now work to stabilize, widen, or pave the road has reached a point not far north, but had not reached this point at the time of observation. There appears to be nothing to protect this gravestone.
