Unknown Gravesite My grandmother lived on Richmond Ave. the back of the cemetery is on Richmond Ave.
Directions: Take Baker Ave. cross over Central Ave. pass 5 or 6 houses take a right on to Richmond Ave.
very small Ave. as you go up the Ave. There is a curve in the corner of the Ave. this is the back of the Cemetery. I remember as a child go over to the cemetery. The city had complainants about snake coming out of the cemetary so they cleaned it up by, bring a tractor and run over some of the graves. They broke a lot of small childrens graves. Most of the cemetary was left intacted. One section of the cemetary has full flat grave stones that cover the whole graves. There is also a bricked in section and a Family Doctors grave. You can also reach the cemetary by way of Central Ave. or Wrightboro Rd. but you may not know what you are looking at, it was grown up pretty bad. If you know what you are looking for there is a stump, that is
what we child called it a long time age. I came to find out it is a Woodman of the World headstone.
Direction from Central Ave.
Going up Central Ave., pass Baker Ave.,take the next road on your left. I can't remember what the name of the street is. It's very wide for a city street. There is probably a story in that.
This cemetary is very old. I know of other cemetaries in this area (The Hill, and Harrisburg) Please contact Shannon Brittingham at my E-mails or
Location is between Central Ave. and Wrightsboro Rd.

One way to help find the era your ancestor was buried is to examine the material from which the tombstone is made.  If your ancestor has a stone made of slate or common fieldstone (except wood used by pioneers), chances are the stone dates from 1796-1830.

 * If the stone is flat-topped hard marble, dates are about 1830-1849.

 * If the "mystery" stone is round or pointed soft marble with cursive  inscriptions, look for a date of 1845-1868.

 * Masonic four-sided stones began in 1850 and are still in use today.

 * Pylons, columns and all exotic-style monuments are usually dated 1860-1900.

 * Zinc monuments date from 1870-1900.

 * Granite, now common, came into use about 1900.

 If the writing is too faded to read, use a 75 watt black light bulb in any lamp that casts light directly on the written message.  The writing will miraculously appear.

*** CODE SECTION ***  08/26/98

No known cemetery, burial ground, human remains, or burial object  shall be knowingly disturbed by the owner or occupier of the land on which the cemetery or burial ground is located for the purposes of developing or changing the use of any part of such land unless a permit is first obtained from the governing authority of the municipal corporation or county wherein the cemetery or burial ground is located, which shall have authority to permit such activity except as provided in Code Section 36-72-14.

36-72-5 G
*** CODE SECTION ***  08/26/98

Application for a permit shall include, at a minimum, the following information:

(1) Evidence of ownership of the land on which the cemetery or burial ground is located in the form of a legal opinion based upon a title search;

(2) A report prepared by an archeologist stating the number of graves believed to be present and their locations as can be determined from the use of minimally invasive investigation techniques, including remote sensing methods and the use of metal probes, which activities shall not require a permit;

(3) A survey prepared by or under the direction of a registered surveyor showing the location and boundaries of the cemetery or burial ground based on an archeologist's report;

(4) A plan prepared by a genealogist for identifying and notifying the descendants of those buried or believed to be buried in such cemetery.  If those buried or believed to be buried are of aboriginal or American Indian descent, the genealogist, in preparing the notification plan, shall consult with the Council on American Indian Concerns created pursuant to Code Section    44-12-280 and shall include in the notification plan not only any known descendants of those presumed buried but also any American Indian tribes as defined in paragraph (2) of Code Section 44-12-260 that are culturally affiliated; and
