I believe the name of this old cemetery is Cedar Grove Cemetery and it's not completely forgotten, but little known.
Have you listed all the lost cemeteries in the Blount Springs area you've found? My families have been in Blount County since the Creek Indians fought them for it.
Really good stuff. (I love the photo transition you have earlier too btw.)
I visited the final resting place of your ancestors today.
The GPS coordinates have been sent to you via PM.
Please let us know when you go visit the peaceful location.
I'm proud of you for researching your family history.
Let me know if I can help.
