Natchez Trace State Park contains a great many small cemeteries. I'm not sure how so many graveyards ended up so close together, but there they are. We stopped at this one -Altom Cemetery- to get a closer look. It was surrounded by a wooden fence and was well cared for. We didn't see markings on any of the grave stones.
The most notable aspect for me was that someone had put offerings for the dead on the stones.
It looked like each of the stones had had a rock placed on top but that some of the rocks had fallen off.
I replaced the ones I could find.
