This is a list of people buried in an abandoned cemetery off Mannings Mill Road, in Adairsville, in a wooded area between a new subdivision they have built and a large farm. It is very overgrown in this area & the farmer who owned the land did not know the cemetery was there. This area has been left as a buffer from sound and smell between the farm and the subdivision through a agreement between the developer and the farmer. At some point in the future the cemetery may be lost or forgotten.

Directions:  From Highway 41 turn onto Mannings Mill Rd , maybe a half mile you will see a new development on the left, just past this subdivision, the first older farmhouse on the left is 104 Mannings Mill Rd. It is obviously a working cattle farm with fenced pastures and a barn and corrals. The house has a drive on each side that circles to the back of the home. The owner is Roy Phillips and he will gladly show you how to get to the cemetery which is on the right side and to the rear of his home. It is on a hill about 40 to 50 feet high, that runs at a 90 degree angle from the street about 100 to 150 yards. The cemetery is on the top about 100 yards from the road. You can see some of the roofs in the new subdivision from the cemetery. The hill is almost flat on top and is about 35 yards across. It drops off on both sides, one to the pasture and the other to the subdivision.

If  you go to the cemetary dress appropriately because you have to cross a small creek and go either over or under a barbed wire fence.

One other choice is from either of the two houses in the subdivision whose backyards back up to the hill. The 2 houses are at the end of a cul-de-sac at the rear, right side of the subdivision. I didn't note the actual address but you could probably figure it out.
