SMITH /TRIPP CEMETERY
At time of burial this was Pulaski County. Bleckley County wasn't created till 1912.
Off from road...look for tall trees ... cemetery is under those tall trees. Crude road for a short distance, then necessary to walk cemetery. It was in very bad shape all grown up in weeds & briars.

(Tripp --- tombstone added the "e")
His wife was Caroline Nobles she outlived him about fifty (50) yrs and is buried at Trail Branch Primitive Baptist Church Cemetery.
Her death made the Macon Telegraph for longitity. They stated she lived to be well over 120 yrs. This can be proved to be incorrect if you look at the census. She did live to a ripe old age I won't denied that. But the paper got carried away.
I was able with her death certificate to state that my great great great grand mother's maiden name was Rebecca Caroline Davis. She was the wife of William "Billy" Nobles.
He buried in a field cemetery across from Cool Springs (so they say).
