Bethany Cemetery

  Location of Bethany cemetery:  Located west of Nelsonville on Hwy.159 approximately 1\2 mile.

Bethany Colored Cemetery AKA Bouldin-Flake Cemetery) 

This was originally started as cemetery for slaves.  It is  also located east of Nelsonville approximately miles.

NOTE:  I only do transcribing and helping people with genealogical research.  I have nothing to do with the cemetery, so if you are looking for information on purchasing plots contact the caretaker or a local funeral home.

Please remember that many of the older cemeteries are located on private property. Please respect not only the cemetery but also the owner's rights. Always obtain permission to enter private property.


PLEASE CHECK the Cemetery Index page as the below table may not be complete.
