Inscription.  At least two generations of the nineteenth century Brumfield family are reported to be buried here, including Paris Brumfield (1838-1891), Ann Toney Brumfield (1838-1894), and John Brumfield (1870-1900). Paris and John Brumfield were main participants in the 1889 Lincoln County Feud also known as the Brumfield-McCoy-Adams-Hall Feud. The families competed in the timber, saloon, and whiskey business in the late 1800's . The Feud led to upheaval and killings. It is told the Governor called out the militia to restore order in Lincoln County. To learn more about the Lincoln County Feud visit your local library.
