James Martin House

I was raised on

I was raised on Cypress Mill Rd. from 1950-1969. During this time the Bounds were living in the house, now known as the Martin, Bounds place. We lived across the road from the Bounds on the

Petty's side of the road. During my childhood

I found a cemetery across the road from the Bounds home. Going down the road pasted their home on the left, slightly starting down the hill on the left about 100 yards into the woods. It was a small cemetery with iron fence around it. I can remember that the dates on the stones dated way back in the years of 1800. The markers were tall marble and granite and one was pink very nice for that time area. I would like to know more about this cemetery and who it belong to if anyone can help.
