Friendship Cemetery - Reo Road

Ethan Geer has taken a great deal of time and effort to perform the survey of this cemetery which is no longer maintained. His work is honored and greatly appreciated by the Whitfield County coordinator, we no longer have a good email link for Ethan, and if anyone could help with that I would be greatful. Any new listings or entries can be submitted by e-mailing Trish Elliott-Kashima.

Notes of Ethan Geer: Friendship Cemetery - This cemetery lies outside the county line by less than 1/2 a mile. Many people who were buried here were residents of Whitfield and therefore it should be relevant to the Whitfield cemetery list. This cemetery has experienced a rebirth in present times, but still shows signs of vandalism and major litter problems due to it's remote location. It came into use in the 1850s when Gordon Springs fell out of favor and Dunagan cemetery was formed. As it was located much closer to the original Friendship Baptist Church building. There are 87 legible markers and approx. 50 burial sites marked by depressions or mountain stone. This cemetery has very irregular rows and many missing stones. I do not attempt to make any associations between stones other than they make themselves. All data present was transcribed. 3/26/2005
