Jackson Street Cemetery (Old Athens Cemetery)
Clarke County, Georgia

Lat: 33° 57' 21"N, Lon: 83° 22' 25"W, approx

Contributed by Natalie Davis, Dec 28, 2003 [nkratfel@enter.net]. Total records = 60.

The cemetery is located on the grounds of the University of Georgia on Jackson Street between the Visual Arts Building and Baldwin Hall. From the Arch at Broad Street and College travel east 1 block and make a right. On the 3rd block just past the Art Building on the left is the Jackson Street Cemetery.

"Old Athens Cemetery" or "Jackson Street Cemetery" is the oldest in the county and many of the headstones are now hard or impossible to read. We have compiled from several previous transcriptions, obituaries and church records to create as complete a record as possible.

I do not know who owns this cemetery, it's condition or if it is still active.

Rhonda Moore and I transcribed this cemetery completing it on Mar 11, 2001.

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.
