****Many of these cemetery surveys are incomplete.   Some are partial surveys that have been submitted by various individuals.  If you have any additional information, please don't hesitate to submit it to us.

This cemetery was founded in 1915.  It is on the road to Geneva AL and is across the road from Sweet Gum Head Church of Christ and the Sweet Gum Head Church of Christ Cemetery.

This cemetery was surveyed by Lucretia Collins on 13 November 1998.  She states that there were 11 graves which either did not have headstones, any information, or they were so weathered that they were illegible.

DIRECTIONS:  From the intersection of State Road #88 and #165, 6 miles northeast of Darlington, go north on #88 for 1 and 2/10 miles.  Turn right on dirt road, go 2 and 8/10 miles to cemetery which lies 100 feet of road.  (Directions were transcribed by Maggie Ripke from the WPA Effort which states that no Burials of Veterans were reported in this cemetery at that time.)
