Palmer Cemetery

This cemetery is located in Elco precinct on property owned by Tammsco, Inc., a company that mines the surrounding land for silica. This company relocated the McDaniel-Honey Cemetery right next to the McCrites, Sittons, and Palmers already buried in this area. This is not a complete listing, as far as I know there were 2 more McCrite graves and a few unreadable graves.
