It was late in the day when I made the picture,
but actually the only thing that you can really see from the road is shown on this picture.
The clump of trees in the center of the photo is the cemetery.

A special thanks to David Rowland
for additions and corrections to this page! Also, thanks to Betty Blue Windrow for the photo of William Henry and Anna Hazelton McCord Windrow

Burial place of John W. and Susan Elizabeth "Lizzie" Watson Windrow.
Likely burial place for the older Windrow's who lived in the area.

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

Our baby Lillie Ann, W. T. & Lennie Castleman b. June 7, 1894 d. Oct. 12, 1894.

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.
