This cemetery is located on Lee Highway near the intersection with Nutley Street. It is situated on property adjacent to the Pan Am Shopping Center. Although there are only two markers, it is highly visible to those traveling on Lee Highway. (Surveyor’s note: The surveyor has received more questions about this cemetery than any others, most likely because of its high visibility.) It is believed there are at least 13 other burials of family members of the Thompsons, Covingtons, and Tobins. The cemetery was surveyed in September 2010 and the surveyor noted how well maintained the cemetery was and how remarkably clean the markers were. The surveyor could not find any evidence of depressions/burials. It is evident that the cemetery receives visitors as noted by the artificial flowers and Confederate flag at Armistead Thompson’s marker.
