John Andrew Gravesite - Bishop, Georgia

The gravesite of John Andrew; Revolutionary War Veteran, Methodist Minister and member of the Georgia Assembly; is identified with a Georgia Historical Marker on the Macon Highway south of Bishop. In the early 1800's the Mt Zion Methodist church and community occupied this site, but now it sits on private property.

The Toronto Necropolis dates back to 1850 when it opened to replace the Strangers' Burying Ground, and early Potter's Field. Located near the east end of the Cabbagetown neighborhood in Toronto it sits on a bluff above the Don River Valley.

Family Cemetery, Currituck County, NC

Family cemetery on Caratoke Highway, NC
I came across this family plot while driving down US 158 on the way to the Outer Banks in North Carolina. It's neatly and lovingly maintained, and sits right in the middle of a large soybean field.
