This cemetery is the one shown as "Reeves Cemetery" on old gas pipeline company maps and is on property (LL 109) owned by Wiley Reeves (my g-g-g-grandfather) in the early 1800's. It was passed on later to William Reeves (my g-g-grandfather), and later on was bought by another Reeves descendant of Wiley's.  In the picture which includes the car (above), the cemetery is in the thick grove of trees located in the center at the top of the hill.

Located on private property in Spalding County off Hwy 92 just south of the Flint River bridge.

Paul says "I would guess there are 20 other graves marked with field stones only, so there is a lot of lost history there."
