      OLD ROBERSON CEMETERY

      This cemetery was so overgrown and in the woods, that it was impossible to get to all the graves. It was late in the afternoon and when we reached the cemetery, we stumbled into a yellow jackets nest and had to leave immediately. Several relatives indicated that this was where Rufus Allen and Margaret Roberson Merriman are buried. On the next trip to Bledsoe County, I plan to revisit this cemetery and get as much information as possible. I do know that Margaret's parents are buried there, Col. Isaac Roberson and his wife, Elivira Cole. I was able to get a faint picture of their gravesites before being stung several times. [14]
