Cemetery notes and/or description:
Travel south on Old River Road, take a right turn on George Windham Road. There is a large sign which says "Nix Ferry Cemetery." It is right on the roadside. This is a very tiny cemetery---about 7 feet by 4 feet---with a wire and post fence surrounding it. There is only one grave there.

In years gone by, the whole hillside was covered with graves marked with wooden markers. At this time, there are no other tombstones or markers visible. (Prior to 1992)

"A later note: In a conversation with Bob Shaw, who previously worked for
Beauregard Electric Co-op, he related to us that in years gone by, the whole
hillside was covered with graves marked with wooden markers. At this time,
there are no other tombstones or markers visible after taking a walk among the
briars and small pine trees."
