Hawkins Family Cemetery

The cemetery was surveyed 29 July 1989 by Yvonne Self. A return visit was made to verify dates and inscriptions. In 2001, photos were taken of the gravestones. One of more of the tombstones is missing between the original survey and when the photos were taken. Names are linked to photographs of the tombstone.

This cemetery is on private property. Permission from the property owner must be obtained before visiting the site. From the intersection of U.S. Highways 431, 78, and AL Highway 21, proceed south on AL Highway 21 about .5 miles to Friendship Road. Turn east on Friendship and proceed about 4.3 miles. The cemetery is located on the north side of road on hill in clump of trees.
