The Below, submitted by Walter King, February 1, 2007;  waltercking@sbcglobal.net

I think there is also a marker there for James Monroe Cunningham (1852 - 18xx), but am not sure.  Also I have heard (original source, Mr. Walter Johnson of that area) that his son

James Cunningham is also buried there, but there is no marker.
