Wishing You A
From Our Family To Yours!
Janie Harrison (Mrs. Rayford) has known for many years about a small cemetery north of Big Spring because her father had told her about it when she was in high school.
He showed her the small fenced area and said, â€śI want you to know about this so that it wonâ€™t be forgotten. We donâ€™t know who is buried here.â€ť
He called it the Phillips Cemetery because the Phillips family had owned the land at one time. The McCauleys owned the land before the Phillips family and Craig Ingram is the present owner, his father having purchased it from the Phillips.
