* (Pictures from the "Black Section" of the cemetery)

**Inscription from the tombstone of Novella Farrer Banks: “Here is one who is sleeping in faith and love, With hope that is treasured in heaven above.”

**Inscription from the tombstone of Wm. S. Beadles: “‘Asleep in Jesus, peaceful rest Whose waking is supremely blest No fear, no woe, shall dim that hour That manifests the Saviour’s power.’ –M.L. Turnipseed, Jonesboro, GA”

**Inscription from the tombstone of Emily C. Bennett: “Born 6 May 1821.  Married 4 Nov 1839.  Joined Primitive Baptist Church 1852.  Died 25 Feb 1887 of Paralysis.  Age 65 yrs. 9 mos. 19 dys.  ‘How gentle was the stroke Divine Which bound her head in death!  How peaceful, did her soul resign Her friends, her life, her breath. –C.E. Bennett.  ‘Sweet Mother of a mourning band, We’ll study o’er thy life of love And gather up thy counsels rare, That we may share thy Home above. –CHILDREN.’

**Inscription from the tombstone of Lavina Bennett: “The deceased was a consistant (sic) member of the Primitive Baptist Church above 58 Years.”  “Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord.”

**Inscription from the tombstone of Rachel Bennett: “The deceased had been an orderly member of the Baptist Church for many years.”  “Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord.”

**Inscription from the tombstone of Wm. Bennett: “The deceased was an orderly member of the Primitive Baptist Church for above 60 Years.”  “Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord.”

**Inscription from the tombstone of William J. Berry: “His suffering over he is at rest.  God called him home he thought it best.  A precious one from us is gone, A voice we loved is stilled, A place is vacant in our home which never can be filled.”

**Inscription from the tombstone of Green Betsill: “Remember friends as you pass by as you are now, once was I, as I am now, you shall be, prepare for death and follow me.”

**Inscriptions from the tombstone of Mary Claudine & William J. Blalock: “Infants of Jesse L. & C. Blalock.”  “He takes such little lambs, And lays them in his breast.  Protection they shall find in him, In him, be ever blest.”

**Notes for Mollie A. Bosworth's tombstone: Her mother's first initial is hard to read.  I think it is "F" or "R," but an earlier transcriber listed it as "E." 

**Notes for the symbol on F.B. & Elvira D. Brown's tombstone: The emblem on the left is a circle in which the letters "KSHTWSST" are inscribed.  This emblem is indicative of a "Knight Templar in the York Rite Degrees of Freemasonry."

**Inscription from the tombstone of James Luke Butler: “A light from our household is gone, A voice we loved is stilled, A place is vacant in our hearts That never can be filled.”
