Tombstone Tuesday: Some Early Burials at Price Creek Cemetery

Price Creek Baptist Church and Cemetery are located in northern Pickens County, Georgia, near the Gilmer County Line.

One unusual burial site is that of “Two Little Indian Boys.” The marble stone appears to be rather modern and the identity of the boys is a mystery.

      Unfortunately, civil registration of Georgia deaths was not required until September 1919, so the county probate court would not have a record. You would need to check with the church officials for their records, since the church records are private. In May 0f 2007, a survey of the cemetery’s grave markers did not include Pleasant Lewis.
