A shorter route is to follow County Rd. 28 from nearer the Hancock-Taliaferro line, but County Rd. 28 can be muddy and may not be passable at all times.
Part of this cemetery is surrounded by a stone wall, approximately 50 feet by 30 feet.
We include the cemetery in the Hancock County website because, prior to 1830, this area was part of Hancock County.
