This family cemetery is well maintained and visible from the road. There is a drive from the road making the cemetery easy to visit. It appears that at one time it was adjacent to the road. The location of the present paved road has been shifted, but the original road location next to the cemetery is obvious. The cemetery had an entrance flanked by boxwoods (on the right of the photograph above.)

I have called this the Flem D. Long Cemetery because what was Flem Long's home is almost within sight of the cemetery. The sign uses the name "Long Family Cemetery 1908."

This cemetery was surveyed in February 2004 by Ed Clayton. Yvonne A. Bennett transcribed the inscriptions below from the photographs. Thank you Yvonne! You can browse the photographs of the Flem Long Cemetery.

Tips on reading the inscription listings:

  • Comments or added information is in parentheses. Information not in parentheses is from a stone.
  • A slash ( / ) usually designates a new line on the stone.
