Bostian (George) Cemetery 2001

Bostian (George) Cemetery

At the end of Hickory Springs Road SW (2135), walk up the logging road until it forks, take the left side. The road follows along a spring branch. At the next fork in the road, keep on the right side. Walk for about 11 minutes until you come to the top of the ridge and pass a fence. Turn left and continue the climb. After about 20 minutes of walking from Hickory Springs Rd, the cemetery is on the left. You can see the beginning of Buffalo Mountain at this spot. It is fenced with wire and has a wooden gate. There are large boxwood shrubs around the graves. The top of a large pine tree had fallen across the fence and broke off the left arm of a concrete cross. The two concrete vaults are about 24 inches high. George Bostian’s vault is very wide. Ida Bostian’s marker is made of bricks. Large barrels of bricks and sand are inside the fence. Two modern markers have been placed on top of the vaults.
