This is a pictorial canvass - there are many more burials here as evidenced by what appears to be
various mounds and probably more that can't even be seen anymore.  There are many burials here from 1914, especially children.  This cemetery is fenced on the backside but not on the road side.  It is evidently being taken care of as it was neatly mowed when I was there, Saturday, September 1, 2001.

Wyatt Chapel Cemetery is located 4 miles west of the Satterwhite church and about 1/4 mile north of the intersection on the west side of the road. Also, the old Wyatt Chapel school was located about 1/2 mile north of the intersection on the east side of the road. The foundation is still there. My father-in-law, Joe A. Cook, used to maintain the Wyatt Chapel cemetery until his death about 4 years ago. DeWayne Colwell

Left - A.J. Wright, died age 72, March 28, 1928 and right - Stellie Irene Cox, 1883 - 1929 - Mother
I just found out that this headstone that says; Mother, Stellie Irene Cox, 1883-1929, is the daughter of LaFayette and Mitilda Green, Sarah Stella Green. She married Alexander Cox. the name is wrong, and you may want to put a note as to who she is. This info was given to me by her G G Grand daughter.  Although my family tree info says Stellie Irene Cox was the name of Sarah Stella Green Cox's daughter, but the dates on that headstone are for Sarah Stella.  Could it be that Stellie put that on her Mother's headstone as being her Mother?  This is confusing, as the info I have says that Sarah Stella is buried in Pauls Valley Cemetery.  The only thing I can figure is that the daughter put Mother (and meant her mother) of Stellie Irene because the dates are correct for it to be Sarah Stella.  By Margaret Ayers

    This is a view of the Williams stone showing the markers just to either side of it.  These are probably the old markers for the Williams which have been replaced by the newer one, but they could be unknowns also.
