I have already varied that I am right that the Patton Pioneer Cemetery is located as to where I have already mentioned that it. I know that this is correct because I see by my burial list the N. C. Frazier is buried there, but he has not dates of birth and death. The parents of Mrs. Julius H. Frazier are also buried in this same cemetery. RCB
