Historical Marker
    This site was first used as a cemetery in 1871 when the infant daughter of pioneer area settlers Thomas W. and Charlotte Rozell was buried here. The oldest marked grave is that of Sarah Kiker (1802-1877). In 1885 W.F. Umberson, who settled in the area before the Civil War, set aside two acres here as public burial ground for the Gholson Communty. Located on the property was a one-room building, The Kellum School, which was also used for local church services. A cemetery tabernacle was built in 1925 and additional land was acquired in 1950.
