KIRKLAND CEMETERY

GAGenWeb

This cemetery is located off the New Forrest Hwy. Follow the signs to Sand Hill Church and take a left after the Church. The cemetery is down a dirt road on the right side with an iron fence around it. At one time it was called Rock Hill Cemetery. The iron fence is one of a few, if not the only one left surrounding a cemetery in Coffee County.

*NOTE*These graves are all marked unless otherwise indicated.

This is not a complete listing of the gravesites there and unfortunately they are not in any particular kind of order.
