Buzbee Road runs east from Centerpoint Parkway, otherwise known as Alabama Highway 75, loops around and reenters the parkway about a half block further north, within the city limits of Pinson.

This cemetery has seen some hard times and has been taken over by the State of Alabama. I spoke to many concerned family members of those buried there. There is hope that some person or corporation will purchase the cemetery. I understand the cemetery is but a small portion of about 40 acres that is affected. The State thus far has shown little interest in the upkeep of the cemetery.

The earliest burial appears to be that of Robert L. Taylor on Jan 19, 1971. There are over 400 surnames represented in this cemetery and there are over 150 military veterans buried here. Some markers have been removed by vandals but I have been able to reconstruct most of the information.

I completed this transcription of the cemetery on Jun 05, 2007. It is a complete transcription of legible stones in the cemetery.

    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.
