Dudley Family Cemetery was visioned by Mary Elizabeth Dudley, who had picked out a spot on the Dudley land to be her final resting place. The Dudley family Cemetery is directly across the road from the Democrat Cemetery that was formed in 1905. Mary Elizabeth Dudley passed away on February 2, 1914 and She was buried in the spot she had selected and so the cemetery was formed. Four of the six children that she and James H. Dudley had are buried in the Family Cemetery.
