In two unmarked graves Mr. Houston Crosby told us he believed were buried "Bud" Bell and his wife

Special note: L. N. "Bud" Bell is buried in Carson Ridge Cemetery and not in the East Union Cemetery as was believed by Mr. Crosby.

There are a great number of unmarked graves in this cemetery; it is overgrown with brush and trees, the graves do not appear to have been made in rows or any kind of order. Many of the stones are in poor condition. We understood that the Sinclairs and Fulliloves were connected with the family of Mr. Cliff McWhorter, Circuit Clerk of Attala County. The Bells and the Cagles are relatives of Mrs. Hoyt Miller, E.Jefferson St.,Kosciusko. The Biggs are relatives of Mrs. A. L. Young of Kosciusko - others of her family are buried in the old Stephens cemetery and in the Marvin Chapel Cemetery.
