Tomlinson Cemetery is located 6 tenths of a mile north of the Cleone crossroads, to the right, about a half a mile down into the woods. It is heavily overgrown with full-sized trees and can easily be missed. The headstones are very well preserved. This is due, no doubt, to the protection given them by the forest. The latest date Larry could find at this cemetery was in 1929, and from appearances, that was the last time any maintenance was done at the graveyard. This is a full transcription of this cemetery, done by Larry Wells.. He didn't find any headstones that were difficult to read, but there have been some buried stones.
