WINDROW WILDFLOWERSI do not know where Richard Windrow or many of his descendants are buried, but the area of the now Rutherford County Community known as Windrow is a country side of rolling hills with trees and open fields. A cemetery is located in one of those fields in a grove of trees. This is a long abandoned cemetery of perhaps a hundred graves. Even though the cemetery is unkempt, and there are only a few markers left, this is a quiet area in which one can hear the birds singing and if one were really still and waited awhile, a fawn might appear from behind one of those old trees. I like to think that this cemetery, known as Windrow Cemetery, is the last resting place of Richard Windrow and his wife Millender Anthony, and perhaps some of their children.
Update on Early BurialsAccording to Mrs. Lillian Brown Johnson in her book My Findings Vol.I The early Windrow and Brown families and their relatives were buried in a cemetery on the Pleasant Watkins Brown place by the Overall Creek. This cemetery has been destroyed and the stones were pushed into a creek. The cemetery was used as a burial place from sometime before 1850 until at least 1925.
This web site presents our known information on the descendants of Richard and Millender.
