Inscription.  This cemetery was established about 1900 on land donated by A.O. Pierce. Marked burials date from 1912. A structure which served as church and public school has since disappeared. The surrounding community has been variously known as "Fivay Junction", "Tucker" and "Greenfield." Fivay Junction served as a shipping point for the timber industry at Fivay, a few miles west. The railhead was also used by Lykes Cattle Co. An in-ground dipping vat, used to rid cattle of ticks, was located nearby.
