Claiborne Mason Cemetery
Submitted by Cecil M. Berkley, Sr 17 December 1999 This cemetery is located less than a mile from the Campbell Co line. To get to this cemetery cross Turnip Creek going east on State road 40 about one fourth mile and look to your right and you will see a grove of trees about 50 yards from road. This cemetery is in very poor condition. Not a lot of markers but a lot of unmarked graves, some of this information was passed down from my grandfather Lafayette Hale Mason Jr who died in 1937 and a granddaughter
had information on her grandparents family John Thomas and Martha Mason. Thomas McDearman owned this farm and it crossed Turnip Creek in to Campbell Co Thomas McDearman was Rev War Soldier and possible buried in this cemetery but no proof and after his death his son-in-law Claiborne Mason bought this farm. This cemetery was surveyed by Cecil Marvin Berkley Sr. 1. Claiborne Mason born ca 1772 died 1839 no marker 2. Elizabeth McDearman Mason "Betsy" born 1789 died Sep 28,1862 no marker 3.
