Notes in ( ) are my own.   I understand that there is a copy of this book in the Houston, Tx library.   Terry Davis
** Terry ask me to post this so others could see the Cemetery listing of Yellow Pine Cemetery. A Lady had a nice site and some pictures of some of the Graves, but the site is no longer there. CGT.

Taken from a photo copy of 3 pages of the Book "The History of Washington County, first county in Alabama Vol. II"  Wahington County Historical Society Barbara Waddell, chairman, Edited by Robert P. Stockton.  No date available.
