Callaway Cemetery

Welcome to the section for Whitfield County, Georgia Cemetery Pages. Ethan Geer has taken a great deal of time and effort to perform the survey of this cemetery. His work is honored and greatly appreciated by the Whitfield County coordinator. We no longer have good contact information for Ethan, if someone could help with that I would be greatful. Any new listings or entries can be submitted by e-mailing Trish Elliott-Kashima.

Due to liability concerns of the present owners of the land which surrounds, and therefore locks this cemetery from outside entry without trespassing, a location or directions can not be provided as only family are allowed to visit the cemetery.
