Brawner-Smith Cemetery is off Pelly Lane on Linda Taylor farm

Edwin Rogers writes:
The Brawner-Smith Cemetery is off Pelly Lane on the farm of Linda Taylor on a hilltop about 200 yards behind her house. It is in an open pasture field that at one time was fenced, but not now. The gravestones are turned over but many are still intact. On the list of interments there is no one by the name of Brawner.

I will email you some photos taken last summer at the site.
