Camp Ground United Methodist Cemetery – Hart County

In May of this year Ritchey and I traveled to Hart County to photograph gravestones in some of the cemeteries there.  One of those we visited, Camp Ground United Methodist Cemetery, is located west of Bonnieville near the intersection of Camp Ground Road and Highway 728.  It is a small cemetery, and some of the stones have not weathered well through the years – and some have a black substance on them that makes some of them unreadable.  But it is still a treasure.  I share a few of those photos with you today.

I can’t be sure her first name is Cyntha, the stone is so deteriorated.

Kate, wife of J. S. Finley, born April 2, 1870, died October 3, 1915.  ‘In life she exhibited all the graces of a Christian, In death her spirit returned to God who gave it.’
