This is a pictorial canvass - there are many more burials here as evidenced by what appears to be
various mounds and probably more that can't even be seen anymore.  There are many burials here from 1914, especially children.  This cemetery is fenced on the backside but not on the road side.  It is evidently being taken care of as it was neatly mowed when I was there, Saturday, September 1, 2001.

Wyatt Chapel Cemetery is located 4 miles west of the Satterwhite church and about 1/4 mile north of the intersection on the west side of the road. Also, the old Wyatt Chapel school was located about 1/2 mile north of the intersection on the east side of the road. The foundation is still there. My father-in-law, Joe A. Cook, used to maintain the Wyatt Chapel cemetery until his death about 4 years ago. DeWayne Colwell
