Segraves Family cemetery--destroyed

I have some sad news to impart, dear family.

The Waugh-Segraves family cemetery was destroyed in recent years. The cemetery was located in Wildersville-Yuma road in the old 9th District, Henderson County, Tennessee. The land is now owned by the Peterson family since 2003.

Did you notice the spelling of the family name? Segraves not Seagraves? That's because this cemetery dated back to as late as the late 1800. It's too bad it is gone now, so much information gone.

There has been an effort to save some of the names and dates from the cemetery.
Here are a few as follows:

Crabb, Susan P., 1832-1910

Laws, Martha "Patsy," 1814-26 Feb 1889
Husband#1: Sherrod Segraves
Husband#2: William Pitt Waugh
Husband#3: Benjamin Phillips
