Cemetery History

The old Holly Grove Church is no longer there, but the cemetery remains. This cemetery is still enclosed by an old post & wire fence right off Newlin Cemetery Rd, right where the road makes a turn over the railroad tracks. The cemetery is located on the northeast side of the road, about 200 feet out. Today it remains hidden underneath a canopy of trees.

This is not the same as the Newlin Cemetery which is located only 300 feet to the northwest along the same road.

Many of the graves were never marked and several others have tombstones that are no longer readable. This cemetery was originally transcribed by Roberta B. Doty and Evelyn E. Cole in February 12, 1993 yielding a total of 19 records. Charles Anderson visited this cemetery in February 2013 and transcribed several more recent burials..

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.
