I have done some searching and well, here is what I was able to find about where Robert Gifford is located.

The following list was given  by Mrs. Aubrey Wright. She obtained the information from Mr. & Mrs. Clyde Orr of Mooresville, TN., both of whom are descendants from persons buried here. Some of these inscriptions were copied by Mr. & Mrs. Orr many years ago. The others are those known by them to be buried here; the birth dates on these are from the Federal Census records.
