I counted at least 14 unmarked graves:

The history of Antioch written by Edna Mott says that some of the unmarked graves are:

Vertie Lee Coffman Leatherman, the wife of James W. Leatherman. She was born September 08, 1886 died February 13, 1909.

Their daughter Edna Mae Leatherman born July 16, 1905 died September 17, 1905.

Randall “Buddy” Harrison and his wife Angaline, Dye Harrison, Mollie Powers and daughter Ethel, Edward and Tabitha Roberts.

Edna also named John K Baker is a Brethren minister and in an ummarked grave but since she wrote this someone must have placed a monument at his grave.

Edna also wrote, “ Jim Mott handed down the story to his children that the first grave in this cemetery was for a Jim Harrison who hanged himself in the Salt Peter came near Patterson Creek where he was peeling bark.
