Old Union Cemetery

Partial Listing

Surveyed May 2001 by Gayle and Ron Thomas

Location: Originally known as THE ARMSTRONG CEMETERY, this historic burial site is located at the intersection of Henry County roads 57 and 194 in Beat 5. The dirt road bounding the cemetery on two sides winds past the old Little Rock post office and continues on toward Abbie Creek by way of Bodiford’s Mill, a community landmark for over a century. Martin H. Armstrong is said to have been the first person buried here, and the earliest marked grave dates to 1863. The latest burial occurred in May, 2001. Although maintained through the Union Grove Free Will Baptist Church, this cemetery has traditionally served the whole community as a burial ground, and now contains 295 named graves, 47 marked but unnamed or illegibly marked graves, and countless graves that are no longer marked in any way. Contributions to the care and maintenance of this cemetery may be made to UNION FREEWILL BAPTIST CEMETERY FUND, % HOLT STOKES, 6485 COUNTY ROAD 53, ABBEVILLE, AL 36310.

We have attempted to identify persons buried here by listing their parents, spouses, and children. As this is our own community, we have interviewed many neighbors, renewed several acquaintances, and made many new friends in the course of researching this cemetery. In addition to personal contacts, we have taken information from census and marriage records of Henry County. A most valuable source has also been The Bend of the Abbie, a personal history of the Union community written by “Miss Linnie” Stokes, who was a relative and friend of many of the persons buried here. We hope that others will provide information we have been unable to determine, and will correct any errors we have made. Gayle and Ron Thomas

One section of the cemetery contains a row of infant graves, poignant testimony to the the high incidence of infant mortality in the rural South.
