First Survey done by J. L. and Sue Henderson on March 6, 1987 for the book, Gordon County, Georgia. Cemeteries, 1989, Gordon County Historical Society.

Survey update done by Netha Dunlap, Oct. 4, 2003

 

Directions: Take Red Bud Rd. exit (Exit 315) off Interstate 75 onto Hwy.156 West. This is also called Red Bud Rd. At the traffic light at the intersection of Red Bud Rd and Hwy. 41, turn left. At the next traffic light, turn right onto Hwy.156. You will immediately cross a railroad. From this traffic light, go 10 miles. After topping a small hill, the white church can be seen on the left side of the road. Turn left before the church. The cemetery is on the left side of that small road.
