Additional Cemetery Info...

In Sisson Township, four miles south of Peace Valley post office. Established in 1874 in a small log building where subscription schools had previously been taught. The land was donated by Robert Sharp, and the name was given for a very highly respected citizen living half a mile away, Nathaniel Barnett, a pre-war pioneer of Gumter Valley, who was a Baptist minister. He represented the county in the legislature in 1876. Barnett Cemetery near the school was started during the Civil War. An unknown Union soldier became ill and died in the community. Mrs. Mary Cunningham, two other women, and "Uncle Buck" Gunter, then a boy of fourteen years, wrapped the body in blankets and buried it at night. (J.N. Barnett; D.W. Epley; R.F. Galloway)
