Zellar Family Cemetery
The Zellars Family Cemetery is located on Hutcheson Ferry Rd, at Jones Ferry Rd, behind the Deer Processing shop. The cemetery is behind the home, just before the pasture gate.
There are 32 graves on the site bearing the surnames of Zellars, Heath, Leigh, Tillman, and Gullatt. A foundation-type wall 54ft long, 11ft deep and 4ft tall surrounds 11 box tombs of the Heath Family.
This cemetery is well maintained and may very well look much like it did in the late 1800s, overlooking beautiful pasture land and a lake.
