Interments and Photos

About 1867, a group of women organized the Ladies Memorial Aid Society with the mission of establishing a cemetery for soldiers who had fallen in the battles of Jonesboro and Atlanta. These soldiers had been left without proper burial. Along with these women, volunteers arranged to go to Lovejoy's Station to collect the remains of the soldiers. More than 500 Confederate dead and 1 Union soldier were interred in the cemetery. The Ladies Memorial Aid Society acquired marble headstones and erected a monument. Dedicated of the cemetery was held on August 17, 1867. Monuments for the dead of the Revolutionary War, both World Wars, the Korean and Vietnam Wars, and for the women who nursed soldiers in Griffin during the Civil War are also located in the Stonewall Confederate Cemetery and Memorial Park.

Lists of interments and photos will be uploaded here as soon as they become available.
