Dark Corner Cemetery Records
Fort McClellan, Calhoun County, Alabama

Lat: 33° 38' 18"N, Lon: 85° 56' 07"W

Contributed by Johnny Williams, Aug 22, 2006 [johnnylwilliams@yahoo.com]. Total records = 17.

This cemetery is situated on the Fort McClellan Military Installation. The exact address is uncertain. It is north of Hwy 78 and the southern border of Calhoun County.

In the Alabama Cemetery Atlas #2 it says this cemetery is also known as Antioch Cemetery, so perhaps there was a church associated with it at one time.

First burial in this cemetery was Amilia Young in 1899, the last one was Fannie Fair in 1923. There are supposed to be 18 buried here, but this account only has 17.

This cemetery was surveyed in May 1963 under the direction of Ralph H. and Louise Allred of Gadsden, Alabama by Zetta Mitchell Sieber. Sandy Spence entered into the computer from their work, and I am publishing it with permission.

    What makes us Different?

    Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

    Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
