Total records = 7.
Location of this cemetery is southwest of Camp Hill, AL. off of Tallapoosa
County Road 34. From Opelika, AL go north on U.S. Highway 280. County
road 34 will be on your left where Ala. Hwy. 50 comes into highway 280
on your right at Camp Hill, AL. Turn left onto 34, go 3.55 miles. You'll
pass Pine Grove Church on the left. Turn left at the first road to the
left after the church. That will be Churchill Rd. Go almost exactly one
mile. The Ware Cemetery will be on your left in a chain link fenced-in
area about 30' x 40'.
Do not go to visit the cemetery in rainy weather as the road
is paved only about a couple hundred yards when you first turn onto it.
Then it’s red clay. Which is a real mess when wet. There is only seven
distinguishable graves and two possible, marked only by small stones.
There is supposed to be two unmarked graves to the left as you enter the
gate but there is no evidence that they exist. They are supposed to be
of two children killed in a big storm in Agricola, Tallapoosa Co., AL
in the 1920’s. No one remembers what family they were from, just that
their family had no place to bury them at the time. Six of the seven are
well marked considering the elapsed time. Transcribed, Jan 2000 by Roger
