This cemetery is technically located in Taliaferro County, as Johnson/McGhee Road is the border between Hancock and Taliaferro County along this 3-mile stretch. We include the cemetery here because, prior to 1830, this area was part of Hancock County and also because of the potential of the cemetery becoming a "lost" cemetery.
