Map to Priddy Family Cemetery

Dates in Red are not inscribed on the tombstone and have either been calculated based on death date or are as a result of research on the individual.

Only two tombstones with inscriptions are visible in this cemetery, but due to indentations in the ground along with field stones appearing to be grave markers, there appear to be 5 or 6 other graves within the area.
