Vernon Pleasant who lived next door before he died, said that he pulled up the Markers (Rocks) so

 that he could mow the field, he said there were no names on the stones or dates, (except the one below).
He said that when the railroad was being first built that they used that lot to bury (mostly foreign) Chinese RailRoad
workers, who died working & had no family Cemetary's. (By T. Phillips)
