The Ford Family Cemetery GPS 33 35.734N 84 14.070W Elevation 886 Ft.
This is a very old cemetery located on East Atlanta road just south of Rex Rd. It is on the West side
of the road. The cemetery could use some care. It is not the worst we have seen but it could use
some raking and trimming of brush. This cemetery is where
George M.T. Patillo is buried. He was born 3/17/1833 and died 6/17/1908. Mr. Patillo served in
the CSA army in Co. K 22nd GA Regt. His diary was used to help name the roster from Clayton
and Henry Counties that served so distinctly.
The cemetery does not appear to be in danger of development.
