Red Hill Cemetery – #073

Recorded April 1972 by Ralph and Jane Ayers.  Updated from notes of Eddie Neal, a relative of many of those buried in this cemetery and also from Wingfield Funeral Home records.

Thank you to Arleigh Ordoyne for the tombstone pictures she took on 23 March 2021.

Directions: Head west on West Ave. toward S College St. for 0.8 mi. Keep left to continue on Adamson St., then turn right onto Prior Station Rd. Travel 1.6 mi, then turn right onto GA-100 N. Travel 3.8 mi and turn left onto Edge Rd. Cemetery entrance in on right but entrance is blocked by a gate. Property owned by Berg Timber Properties which has planted pine trees throughout the cemetery.

GPS: 34.03788, -85.35607

A logging company planted pine trees in this cemetery some 6 years ago.  Because of this, Red Hill Cemetery has become OVERGROWN & ENDANGERED.
