GLENFAWN CEMETERY

Cemetery was begun after the death of Julien Sidney Devereux (1805-56), with the remains of his father, John W. Devereux (1769-1847), and an infant son reinterred soon after. Called Devereux and Sand Field, the plot served nearby Forest Hill community (1 mile N), site of academy founded by Devereux in 1850. Name was changed to Glenfawn in 1872 when post office opened with Charles Nunnaly, postmaster. The settlement had several stores, two blacksmiths, school, church and masonic lodge building. The old Methodist-Baptist church was located east of cemetery. (1973)
