There are many small cemeteries in Lauderdale County, AL, most
of which are for particular families. Some of them have only a single
marked grave. By grouping them by township and range it is hoped
that we will be able to put all of them on line.  Cemeteries with 50 or
less marked graves will be included in this category. If you know of
a small cemetery that has not been surveyed or put on line, please
 contact either Bob Torbert  or  Pat M. Mahan
