SINGLETARY CEMETERY #1 (Previously documented by Joe E. Craigmiles III)
is located in Thomas County, GA near the town of Ochlocknee. It is very near
the intersection of McMillan and Maddox Roads. Looking south across McMillan
Road, a cluster of trees (cemetery location) can be seen several hundred feet
from McMillan road. The cluster of trees can easily be seen looking across
from Walden Cemetery which is on the north side of McMillan Road. There is
no public access for SINGLETARY CEMETERY #1.
To locate SINGLETARY #1 CEMETERY, go south from the town of Ochlocknee on
Stewart Road for about two or three miles and turn right (west) on McMillan
Road, and then drive two or three more miles to the intersection of Maddox
Road. The cemetery is on the left side of McMcMillan going west, several
hundred feet before reaching Maddox Road.
13 Nov 1821
26 Sep 1906
"He was an unbelievable Christian man"
(Husband of Nancy Singletry)
1 Mar 1819
6 Mar 1874
"She believed and sleeps in Jesus"
(Wife of Joseph Singletary)
The survey published by Craigmiles indicates George Singletary was also buried
in this cemetery. However, in its present uncared for condition, George's grave
marker could not be found. Craigmiles survey did NOT include Joseph's wife Nancy
Singletary. Joseph "Mill Joe" Singletary operated a saw mill in the Pine Park
area. Joseph was the son of Willis Singletary and Willis' first wife, Mary Wood.
Joseph built a house on Railroad Street in Ochlocknee where he and his second
wife, Mrs. Teresa (Bowen) Lindsey lived until they died. Nancy Singletary was a
daughter of Brayton Singletary and Brayton's first wife, Mary Feeeman.
Craigmiles' survey of SINGLETARY CEMETERY #1, lists only two graves:
George Sept. 21, 1854-Dec. 30, 1890
Joseph Nov. 19, 1821-Sept. 26, 1906.
(It is well-known that George Singletary was a son of Joseph Singletary and
Nancy Singletary, so he might well have been buried in this cemetery. George
was an invalid and remained single all his life.)
