Rocky Ford Cemetery

"Gray"

"At head of the hill just to east of Rocky Ford, on south side of road at the bend of road."
"Much of cemetery has been destroyed."

The property owner asks that no one attempt to visit this cemetery.

In the Gray Cemetery Just east of  Rocky Ford, many of the stones were used to fill in a deep gully- many years ago.  Therefore, many of the stones are missing, and I have no doubt but what many of the unknown stones would fill in missing gaps in this family.  From Settlers of Montgomery County, 1817-1840 Volume II, page 112 as transcribed by Walter R. Sanders in the summer of 1951.
