The site is located off of Bill Gardner on Strickland Road. The Cemetery is immediately on
the right surrounded by a brick wall. When it was originally surveyed it was not easily
seen from the road. Mr. Thompson married L. Barnie Harper and she is buring at the King
Cemetery in Clayton County in Riverdale, GA. They had 10 children together.
This cemetery was once part of St. Paul’s Methodist Church. There were many fieldstone
markers around the cemetery at one time that are gone today. The area is now part of a
middle school site and has a pre-school on the property. Emma Stanfield b. 1896 d. 1896,
