Floyd County, Georgia

Directions: From downtown Rome take Broad Street south. At the Anchor Rome intersection, turn right on Cave Spring Street. Go 2.1 miles. Take Daniel Drive on your right. Go 0.2 miles and the cemetery is on your right.

Notes: Partial inscriptions, and any legible information, if found, is included. Since many stones have deteriorated I hope that this information will help identify ancestors’ graves after deterioration has rendered the inscriptions illegible, as will surely happen with time, weather, and age.  [Webmaster note: Because old stones deteriorate in such a short time I encourage everyone to make photos and to share them in many places in hopes that a readable one will survive.]

I proceeded in rows beginning at the grave closest to Daniel Drive. Since the cemetery is not a perfect square rows are not even so keep in mind that the tombstones are noted in the closest approximation to rows.
