Yes, I have a list of those buried in the cemetery. I visited it in the 1950s with my father, Jonas Jackson (Jack) Carver, who kept it cleared of undergrowth until his father, Talley Guill Carver, died in 1948. At that time, he bought a large family plot in Woodlawn Cemetery, Nashville, of 12 graves, 6 of which he deeded to his sisters, and on which my grandfather was interred. He then moved the remains of his mother, Ranie Catherine Goodman Carver, from the old Wilson Co.cemetery. When he retired and moved back to Davidson Co., TN, my father stopped cleaning the old cemetery. When I visited it, it was in terrible condition, and I had to fight my way through weeds and thorny branchs waist high!

As a result, I could have missed a couple of markers, but I do not think so. I did not find graves for William and Permelia nor older Chambers' graves. Neither did I find the markers for the grandparents of my grandmother, Ranie, which was surprising.

This cemetery contained the graves of my grandmother, Ranie; her parents Robert Jackson Goodman and Permelia (Polly) Caroline (Callie) Crudup; Polly's grandparents Charles Wright and Mary Ann Hessey; and Mary Ann's parents, John Hessey and Rebecca Hewgley. No Rebecca's marker were the names of her parents, Jacob and Margaret Hewgley.

If the markers of Josiah Crudup and Louisa Jane Wright, parents of Polly Caroline, had been there I did not find them.
