I found a cemetery in Marion County that is not on your list. I am told it is
called "Lambert Cemetery" but there are no inscriptions with that name. It
appears to be abandoned. It is located approximately 1.4 miles west on
Bluff Rd. from the Gapway Baptist Church located on highway 41. As you proceed
west on Bluff Rd. you will see on your right a field with a small group of
trees and bushes sitting in the middle of the field. It's about 0.3 miles
before the railroad tracks. I transcribed every marker in the cemetery that
had an inscription. There are a few graves with granite markers but no names.
Of interest two graves were moved to the Reedy Creek Cemetery; Thomas Drew and
Joseph F. Sineath.
The list is as follows:
Charles T. Lewis 10/9/1850-7/26/1926
Mary K. " 10/9/1867-
Ruth Cook 12/20/1904-4/27/1925 "She was a kind and affectionate wife,
a fond mother and a friend to all"
Martha wife of Nathan Drew 4/26/1839-3/1/1908
Daniel son of E.B. and Mary E. Drew 2/5/1900-4/10/1900 "Gone so Soon"
Ida daughter of E.B. and Mary E. Drew 9/30/1894-5/16/1895 "Our loved one"
Linnie Belle daughter of E.B. and Mary E. Drew 5/4/1892-2/4/1909
Mary E. wife of E.B. Drew 2/1864 - 6/15/1912
Edward B. Drew 1/11/1862-11/16/1926
D. Palmer Drew 11/9/1879-8/26/1906
