    The listing of the people in this cemetery was supplied to me by Perry D. Hatch of Bloomery (his property). The cemetery was called Buckwalter's prior to 1986 when Wilmer L. Kerns renamed the cemetery after uncovering Gaddis' crude stone. Gaddis' dates are not on the stone, but estimated by Kerns, based on documentary research.
