When I was young, I remember my father said that he and my Uncle Jessie, went to the old Windrow Cemetery in search of their grandparents graves. The cemetery was grown up with only a few markers, some fieldstones, and boards already decaying. They were not able to find the graves since they did not have permanent markers. But from this discussion I at least was able to find the cemetery in which my great-grandparents were buried.
John W. Windrow b. Aug. 12, 1846 d. between 1910 and 1920.
Susan Elizabeth "Lizzie" Watson b. 1854 d. after 1930.
James E. Thomas b. 1821 d. Dec. 7, 1881
Mahaley J. Wiggins b. May 23, 1846 d. May 5, 1925
On the left is: Jordan H. L. Primm b. Nov. 12, 1805 d. Feb. 7, 1816
At right: Mrs. Judith Primm b. Dec. 6, 1786 d. Nov. 29, 1865
Also buried in the Windrow Cemetery is:
James O. K. Primm b. Oct. 2, 1809 d. Oct. 15, 1815
William Henry and Anna McCord Windrow
Anna McCord wife of W. H. Windrow b. Jan. 15, 1860 d. Apr. 26, 1895
W. H. Windrow, son of Travis b. Feb. 12, 1856 d. Aug. 6, 1916
Travis Windrow's tombstone is west of that of
Anna McCord Windrow. A visit in December 2007, shows that the tombstone of Travis has been broken and is now leading up against a tree.
Travis was born Jan. 31, 1809 and died Jan. 21, 1874.
Emma Adell Mosley b. Oct. 18, 1911 d. Mar. 3, 1912
A closer look is needed for this one
It does not appear to be a fieldstone.
Thomas Jefferson, son of Travis E. Windrow b. Dec. 6, 1864 d. July 16, 1869 is also buried here, but I didn't take a photo of the tombstone on my most recent trip, because I thought I already had one.
James Carsons son of Eli A. Box Tomb unreadable
Clara Myrtle Windrow b. June 21, 1888 d. Aug. 8, 1889
Cemetery covered with leaves, with a few fieldstones visible.
The old wooden markers have long since decayed and are no longer to be found.
