There is only one marker with information :

( This is Mary Eliza Wright Hollis, wife of “Brunce” Hollis, who is buried in
the Hubert Hollis Memorial Cemetery)

There is a fieldstone marking a grave by on the north side of Mary Elisebeth’s
grave. (No information on the stone).

To the west of these graves are 5 more graves marked by standing fieldstones
with no information.

If anyone has additional information on the people buried in this cemetery,
please notify Kay Koonce kaykoonce27@gmail.com .

Note from Kay Koonce March 18, 2006: Willie Hollis from Birmingham that has a trailer there in Sulligent and his nephew Ronnie Hollis took me to this cemetery yesterday. There is a sign for it further down Dempsey Road from where we went in. We took Mulberry to Dempsey Road three or four miles to a log road and went in for quite a distance. I think probably the reason her gravesite is here and Brunce is in the Hubert Hollis Cemetery is that the Hubert Hollis Cemetery was not established at the time she died. The Brunson that she was married was the son of Berryman/Berriman & Louisa Holliday Hollis. Not my direct line Brunson Hollis.
