    Directions: From Garland travel east on Kane Road SR 3014 1.1 miles and just around the right angle corner and just beyond the farm buildings on the right. This cemetery contains the OLDEST TOMBSTONES in the county, dating back to 1813. Records show that at least eight Revolutionary Soldiers are buried here, five of whom have tombstones. This cemetery is so historically important that it should by all means be preserved.
