FISHER CEMETERY

Located on the old Elmiria Warren Fisher place, now owned by Mr. Frank Smith. There is much growth and very difficult to get an exact number or graves. This is in the Mt. Carmel Community. There are many unmarked graves local residents state a few years ago it was easy to identify more than 100 graves. This cemetery was indexed by Margarett Alexander on April 17, 1978. Thanks to Mr. Omer Phillips and Fred Alexander for their assistance.
