The tombstone of R. Mills, who died December 7, 1864, records the earliest date of a death, and possibly the first burial in Little Toqua Baptist Church Cemetery. This was a neighborhood cemetery many years before the church was established. It is located 18 miles Northeast of Madisonville. To reach the cemetery take the Niles Ferry road to intersection of Vonore-Ball Play road, then Ball Play road to beyond Mt. Zion section, then turn left onto road leading toward Bacons Ferry. There are 105 inscriptions and approximately 100 unmarked graves in Little Toqua Cemetery.
