| Located on land given by early settler L.F. Wright for a Union Church and School in 1874, this cemetery is one of the few remaining physical reminders of the Wright Community. Although L.F. Wright and his wife are not buried here, the cemetery does contain the graves of some of their family. The oldest marked grave is that of the wife and child of Wright's brother, R.A. Wright. Juda F. Connell Wright, with her infant daughter, died in 1876. Other families represented here include Byas, Ewton, Erwin, Mitchell, and Moughon. Plain rocks mark some early burials.
