Sam--I was really intrigued byyour mention of this grave site. Is the name of the child buried there given? Do you know any more details. It does not appear to be listed in The Cemeteries of Swain County, which is a very comprehensive but by no means complete reference work. Do you have any more history on the site. The presence of the path suggests Park nowledge and/or maintenance of the site, since there are paths to the dozen or more cemeteries in that general area--Luftee, Mingus Creek, Smokemont, etc. I assume you know about the slave cemetery near the Mingus Creek Mill?
