Dade County, GA Genealogy
Bible Cemetery

Location : On Bible Cemetery Road off of Mason Road

Date surveyed : December 1990

Surveyed by : Deborah Hampton Yeary

With the aid of Donny Williams, a local long time resident of Rising Fawn, I surveyed 
this cemetery. Unless you have the help of someone who knows the area you will not find 
this cemetery. It is in a cow pasture.

The markers are recorded as found so as to be able to put family groups together. 
I recorded all fieldstones that clearly marked gravesites without markers and sunken graves without fieldstones 
or markers.  Where possible I confirmed with family members or other genealogical sources the names of persons 
and dates without markers.  When I was recording these cemeteries, I recorded them manually with pen and paper 
and also read the names and dates into a tape recorder which I then transcribed and compared the two.  Every 
effort was made to record this cemetery as accurately as possible, if there is a conflict with a date please use 
other sources to verify.  I cannot recheck this cemetery.
