Bay Springs Full Gospel Church Cemetery

This cemetery was probably in this location before the current church was built. The area has sometimes been known as McKinnonville.

Directions: US29 north to CR182 (Molino Road). Turn left and go to CR99. Turn right and travel until it intersects with CR97A. Left on CR97A for about one-half mile at the intersection of CR97 and CR99. Church and cemetery are on the left. Contact Mary Lee Garrett, (850) 327-4143.

The Bay Springs Full Gospel Church Cemetery was surveyed around 1986 by members of the West Florida Genealogical Society (WFGS). The results of the survey were published by WFGS in Volume One, Gravestone Registry, Escambia County, Fla. Since the publication is no longer in print, the list of gravesites on this page has been transcribed from the publication and contributed to the Escambia County USGenWeb site with permission of the WFGS Board of Directors.

Please send corrections or additions to Evan Strohl, WFGS Chairman, Cemetery Committee, or the Webmaster. All sources will be credited.
