What the Genealogist Should Look for in Cemeteries - Glascock Co. GA Wills, Estates - #genealogy - #georgiapioneers

Jeannette Holland AustinWhat the Genealogist Should Look for in Cemeteries
By Jeannette Holland Austin

A large percentage of the population was buried without tombstones at any given era of time. For the few families who purchased a plot, fenced it off and buried all the family members inside, we owe a hearty "thanks!" Sometimes, when visiting a cemetery, another family member will identify an unmarked grave, or one marked with "rocks." People who have resided in small towns all of their life seem to know who is buried where. The reason is that they had some connection with the family and, in passing, the names on stones are discernible. Barring having all of this help, one must examine each grave site, the stones or rocks, even sinking of the terrain for clues. During the 1900s small memorials upon which inscriptions do not easily survive the elements was generally placed over small children and infants. Slate tombstones easily break. One should dig around in the dirt where there are broken slate stones. The reason is that the top portion could be under the first layer or two of the dirt. Is the cemetery one which may have been the old section of a church which is still standing? A question to ask the neighbors is whether a church once stood on the site.
