VanZandt Cemetery: Notes

VanZandt cemetery

This family plot, now one of the town's?lost?cemeteries, was said to have been located on a knoll in the field. Broken stones were found by earlier readers in an adjoining hedgerow, and two footstones were reported in later years in the area.

The burials were supposed to have been reinterred in Nettle Valley Cemetery, but no records exist of this happening, and no marked graves exist anywhere in the town for the members of the family said to have been buried here.

It is often called the Barber or the VanZandt/Barber cemetery.
