Condition Cemetery is in a weeded area in the middle of the field. There is no fence and it is not maintained. The tall monument that was noted in earlier years is now laying down on the ground. There are no trees as mentioned earlier; they must have been dozed over because there was a pile of trees about 200 yards southeast of this area. (2008)
Range of Burial Dates
Oldest Known Stone: Paralee Bohannon d. January 22, 1873
Last Known Burial Infant Hambright d. November 21, 1913 (stone)

The death certificate for Sarah Bohannon d. November 27, 1917 indicates she was buried in Morton Cemetery, but it is probably Bohannon Cemetery since there is no "Morton Cemetery.

The death certificate for Simeon Bohannon d. July 22, 1934 indicates he was buried in the "Family Cemetery"; not sure if they mean this cemetery?
