Springfield Baptist Church and Cemetery


Springfield Baptist Church Cemetery is located on Highway 129 near Folson
Creek in Wilcox County, Georgia. Global Positioning Coordinates are
3202.532N and 08321.535W.

This cemetery appears to have been established in the 1800s. Some areas
are quite overgrown. Visible markers include upright headstones,
footstones, and flat markers composed of granite and sandstone.

Below are transcriptions of a few of the stones. I will add more photos
and transcriptions whenever possible. If you have any information
regarding this cemetery or its inhabitants, please email Stephanie.
