William & Honora Edwards Cemetery

This cemetery is located in the Sawdust Community. From Quincy, take U.S. Hwy. 90 west to County Road 12 south.
Turn left onto Hwy. 65 South. Travel .8 mile. Turn left on private dirt road named Primrose Lane. It veers left slightly and then
back to the right. Continue to the end of the road where it stops at a locked chain link gate. There is no sign, but this is the
entrance to the cemetery. Looking over the gate, you see an approx. 500 feet wide easement that extends to the right and
up a hill. At the top of the hill, the cemetery is on the left inside a chain link fence. It is well maintained; however, the stones
badly need cleaning.

Surveyed March 28, 2000, by Wayne Carpenter (deceased). Originally typed by Betty James Smith

Surveyed and photographed in 2006 by Donna Warlick and Angela Cassidy. Click on names in
burgundy font to see photos. The photos did not turn out well because some of the stones are blackened
by mold. Thanks to Gladys Rowan for providing relationships of some of the people.

The first table has been typed alphabetically by Angela Cassidy to include new people buried since the 2000
survey. The original survey is at the bottom of the page in the original order, in case you are looking for relationships
of people by their proximity to others.
