John Palmore’s marker was the only one found in the cemetery and his grave was sunken in. All other graves were marked with field rocks and what appeared to be foot markers. It is believed that John’s body was moved to a cemetery in Floyd Co., Georgia in the Coosa area near the Alabama line. His infant son, who was stillborn on 29 May 1921 is also buried there. We visited the Floyd Co. cemetery but were unable to find individual markers.
John was living with his parents, Tobey and Mary Palmour, in Youngs District, Polk Co, Georgia in the 1900 Census. In 1910, John Palmore is living with his brother, Arthur and his family in Youngs District, Polk Co, Georgia. John Palomore (age 40) and his family are listed in the 1920 census for Floyd Co, Georgia enumerated on January 6 & 7, 1920. They are renting a home in East Rome at 1015 Maple Ave. located in Rome Ward 7.
