This index is not complete and contains information mostly on people interred here prior to 1941.

VALLEY MEMORIAL ASSOCIATION member Roscoe Martin,
This old, quite large, rural cemetery is quite beautiful and well kept,
though some markers were totally undecipherable & several which may have had
wooden or other types of markers which no longer exist. There are several
fallen, broken & crumbled slabs buried beneath overgrown sod. Yet this
cemetery is so somewhat beautiful & well kept.

Pioneers & Military Veterans
Comment: In his tireless quest for former soldiers & our locality’s
earliest pioneers, the late Dr. J.Z. Powell, local historian, took a stroll
through this interesting old cemetery, (1907-1912) and jotted them down in his
ever-ready notebook. Several names & dates, which the L’Anguille- Valley
reproduced are included in this report because of the likelihood that
this data (compiled a quarter
to a third of a century ago), may
shed light on a few stones which were, (in 1941) found to be completely
undecipherable. R.B. Whitsett Jr.
