I found two graves marked only with big rocks. One grave that was
marked only with a funeral home marker. The name was not inside the
marker. There was also one headstone there that was not readable. The
headstone was smooth.

Unnamed Cemetery in Kennamer Cove

This cemetery, located Township 4 South, Range 3 East, Section 34 near the mouth of Kennamer Hollow, has been completely abandoned. There is much undergrowth and cedar trees but there are still remains of seven or eight box tpye tombs.

Owners of the property state that years ago there was a tombstone for a small child, Mary Ann Redman, who died at the age of fourteen months. 

One hand-carved stone has the following dates but no names. Evidently this marked the graves of two small children and is one of the very oldest stones found in the paint Rock Valley area. 

Born: May 1830                                                                                                             Died July, 1832

Born: ___ 26, 1830                                                                                                       Died: Oct. 31, 1838

Jonathan Camp Cemetery

Locted Township 4 South, Range 3 East, Section 20, about one mile northof Paint Rock, approximely 100 yards off of Highway 72 East, this land was entered by Johnathan Camp September 29, 1832 and is now owned by Mr. Roy Whitaker, Sr. Mr. Whitaker states that there are about fifteen graves here- no tombstones or markers existing.

Mr. Whitaker also states that he has been told a soilier was buried here. We have found no evidence of Joanathan Camp being a soilder; however, Sarah Camp, widow of Byrd Camp, recevied 80 acres bointy land in the Paint Rock River Bridge area as a result of Byrd Camp's service during the Flordia War. She immediately assigned the land to Joathan C. Camp who was more than likely her son.

Bird Camp was a private in Catian Pruitt'd Company, Alabama Volumteers in the Flordia War and died before 1850, so possibly he is the soldier buried hee.

Garner Graveyard

This cemetery is located in Township 5, Range 3E, Section 4, about two miles southwest of Paint Rock, 300-400 yards to the right of Highway 72. It is encircled by trees but was fairly clean on the inside. Numerous graves here are marked only by native fieldstones. There are ten rocked-up tombs, the type of grave very prevalent in the older cemeteries in Paint Rock Valley, especially prior to 1880.

We copied this cemetery April 7, 1984 and at that time could find no inscriptions. We did fine the base to one bought tombstone but could not locate the tombstone. It is probably that of.
