Cemetery has been destroyed. All information is from family records submitted from Beth Thurmond of Clarke County, Ga. The location is based on the recollection of Beth Thurmond, and the diagram was done by her on Mar. 12, 1989.
A title search done on the cemetery location showed that the property had been owned by the family since David Strickland purchased 287-1/2 acres (originally granted to Robert Smart on Oct 13, 1785) from Reuben Jones of Greene County on Dec. 24, 1792. The last portion of the 287-1/2 acres went out of the family in the 1940's.
Graves 1 through 7 are known to be buried here. Graves 8 through 17 are possibly buried here.
