I overheard my dad discussing tomorrow with you over the phone. I
probably will not be here because I have a trip planned tomorrow to go
to Macon. A few things to know about the graveyard are that there a
lot of sinkholes and a kudzu type vines growing in it. I believe there
is only one headstone, and last time I rode past the graveyard it had
been knocked off by something, possibly by the concrete pillar it was
resting on being disturbed because of a sinkhole. But I don't know, I
have never been inside the graveyard before.
It is just a small area 50 feet long by 30 feet wide, and on one
of the stone wall it is partially falling apart. That's the best way I
can think of to explain it. The graveyard is on top of a hill, and at
the bottom of it is Tobler Creek, which starts behind Davis-Cooper
Ford in Barnesville, and winds its way through eastern Upson County
and eventually makes its way to the Flint River.
If I don't see you tomorrow hopefully I will have the chance to meet
you one day.
