Description:  "Old Bliss Cemetery is an early burial ground - 1830-1870. One of the earlier burials is James Copeland, July 15, 1818." That is what is written on a small sign near the cemetery. A newer sign near the road leave off the "old" part of the name, and also has a date of 1852 on the sign. This cemetery has been inactive for many years until recently (2009), when a new burial has taken place just south of the rest of the cemetery.

Pictures: I took pictures of EVERY stone in this cemetery in April 2010, and also took 2 video's linked below in April 2010.
