Shiny Rock Cemetery

Pat and I (Jacque Otts) were very busy yesterday morning, trying to avoid holes, watching for places that might harbor a snake, and hoping neither of us fell into a hole or into a spike on an old fence. The Shiny Rock Cemetery is a black cemetery located on Primitive Ridge Road just before you get to the Italian/Catholic Cemetery. It is located section 24, Township 22 South, Range 6 West, Bibb Co., AL.

There was no sign. Above are 2 photos that will give an overview of the appearance of the cemetery. Many graves marked only with a concrete slab. Some graves with no marker.
