"Roley McIntosh Burial Ground" 

This old burial ground was established by Roley McIntosh and his  niece, Jane HAWKINS ( a daughter of Chief William McIntosh ) shortly after the arrival of the McIntosh Creek emigration to the territory in 1832. It is located on the original Roley McIntosh claim where he first settled and was known as the McIntosh plantation, one mile north and two miles west of the present site of the town of Wybark.

The general condition of the plot shows years of neglect. The grave stones have fallen into the graves and the entire plot is covered with a dense growth of brush and briars. It is impossible to estimate the number of graves with any degree of accuracy.

There is one grave that has been covered with a white granite vault, the grave has caved in and one end of the large slab that covered the vault is all there is exposed, standing on end in the grave.

There are indications of about twenty graves with no markers.
