Oglethorpe County Cemeteries
If you're planning to visit an Oglethorpe County cemetery, you may want to take advantage
of two very useful tools: the book "Cemeteries of Oglethorpe County,
Georgia" and the 911 Locator Map.
The cemetery book is divided into 12 geographic sections, and each
section includes a map showing the cemetery locations. Detailed directions to each
cemetery are included under the individual cemetery listings. If possible, stop by
the Oglethorpe County Library
and make a copy of the map and directions from the cemetery book.
The highways and county roads are identified by number in the cemetery book; however, the
street signs throughout the county generally use street names (i.e.; County Road 315 is
identified as Lexington Carlton Road). The 911 Locator
Map shows all the roads by name. Comparing this map with the maps in the
cemetery book can be extremely helpful when driving through the rural sections of the
Be aware that many cemeteries, especially the smaller family plots, are located
on private property. Be sure to get permission from the landowner before venturing
onto privately owned land. The landowner may even be able to tell you exactly how to
find the cemetery.
After your visit, be sure to let us know what you've found! We would love
to include cemetery surveys, tombstone inscriptions and photographs on the Oglethorpe
County GAGenWeb site!
You are our 12670 visitor!
