Margaret Jane Hemphill 03 Jul 1837 Aged 3 years, 3 months, 14 days
Nancy Hemphill 1841 No other date.
Daughter of Samuel & Mary G. Mobley No name or date visible.

Mrs. Hemphill's slab states that she was for sixteen years a member of the Presbyterian church.
These graves are boxed over, with flat slabs on top.
Fifteen feet northwest of the four are headstone and footstone marking the grave of a daughter of Samuel and Mary G. Mobley; time and weather have erased the first name and the dates of birth and death.
