A Visit To Meadows/Devil’s Jump Cemetery

In March of 2012 myself, Larry Lamb, & Greg Lam ventured into Jollett Hollow intent on visiting old home sites, telling stories, and visiting the Meadows/Devil’s Jump cemetery where it’s believed that many of our ancestors are buried. The location of this cemetery is on private land and it’s best if you approach the landowner prior to entering the area. The cemetery is located on the left side of the road as you’re climbing Devil’s Jump but I’ll have to get an exact mile measurement at a later date. The following pictures tell the story of the trip…
