This is a abandoned cemetery, but does still exists. I was told last Sunday, (May 18) it is located behind a set of
locked gates on land belonging to Briarfield Iron Works, there in Bibb Co. During my "hunt" for it, I was sent to the
home of Mr. Zeke Fancher who is a young 90 yrs old and lives with his son, who also is named Zeke Fancher, (HE was
wonderful) they live in sight of the cemetery, Garner Graveyard----------------Family Plot, which is located in a
grove of woods, just off of Hyw 25. My family (the Garners) owned this land at the time the cemetery was established.
16 Miles North from Centreville off Ala. Hwy #25, and one mile after crossing Mahan Creek. Turn Right off paved Rd. (this is where the locked gates are, was a lane here at one time) and go 1/2 mile due South.
