Greenway Mission/Winkler Graveyard

Off 321 in Boone on Winkler Creek Rd just behind the electrical substation is an obscured but loveky cemetery,
Some call it the Winkler Graveyard others call it the old Greenway Mission Church burial ground.
I believe Jesse Pennell and his Father nlaw Joseph Dyson
are buried in unmarked graves tehre near Jesses son William Jospeh Pennell.
Are there any church records ro records of burials anywhere in the county archives for this cemetery.
Jesse Pennell was a civil war veteran and I would like to have a stone errected for him as he was My great grand Uncle and his wife Jenny was my Great Grand aunt on the Dyson side as well.

Any information on this graveyard and Chruch would be appreciated.
It looks like the Winklers and Austins are the odlest graves there with Samuel and Mariah Austin having two of the oldest graves.

Aunt Jenny left Jesse Pennell and went to live with her Uncle Moses in Tenn. I think it is possible Spencer and Julia Ann Beagle Pennell may have attended Church at Greenway before migrating west.
