The far east end of Salem appears to be sparsely populated, although
I suspect a good many people rest there in unmarked graves. Lot No. 5
(Lot No. 12 under what apparently was the cemetery's original lot numbering
system) would appear from the plat to be one of the few in the cemetery
that was divided between two owners. "Tharp" apparently owned the
north half of the lot; "Wilson," the south half.
There is only one marked grave on the "Tharp" half, a low, gray granite
marker inset about the width of one grave from the north end of the cemetery,
that is inscribed as follows:
JOE E. CLARK
The only marker on the south, or "Wilson," half of the lot is a very small
gray stone with no inscription. It is located at the far south end of the lot.
