Zion Chapel Cemetery

aka "Taterbug" Cemetery


I am including not only Wanda Morfords Cemetery list done in 1980, but also an old newspaper article about the "Taterbug Cemetery" given to me by Ardath Blue which was sent to her by Mary Cox but also pictures of the Cemetery, taken by myself and Ellen Belcher. Mary & Ellen are cousins of Ardath's. The Cemetery list is first, following it are the other items.
From State Route 56, north on State Route 129 for 1.2 miles, then left on the first blacktop road, which is called "Taterbug" road, it is two tenths of a mile to this small cemetery. There are probably many more burials than stones indicate as there are many open spaces. --Sheila Kell.
