     Felix Gleaves built a house on Central Pike which he sold to his nephews Richard and John Bell Gleaves.  The house remained in the Gleaves family until 1967.  There was a Gleaves graveyard on the land. In 1986, the house was razed.  Long time residents of the area have reported that the cemetery was never moved.  The tombstones were destroyed.  The possible location of the family graveyard was between a mini mall and the Suburban Lodge Motel.
