On George's, it looks more like "Heath" Cemetery. Regardless - her death cert. was signed by H.L. Bethel. He knew the difference between Smith Mills Cemetery and Clay Cemetery. She was buried in neither of those. So until I figure it out - I'm creating a new cemetery under the name "Keach Cemetery".
