Cemeteries of Lamar County

The following list is from the Cemetery Map done by Gene Gravlee & Sabra Newell Sudberry in August, 2002, with contributions by John Allman, Earlie Hughes, Kay Koonce, Floyd Mack "Bo" Morris, Jr., William W. Ogden III, Mr. & Mrs. Thurman Shackleford, Tony Truelove, Joseph Welsh, Dianne Woods, Jimmy Woods, and Sherman Woods.  The listing is used with the permission of Gene Gravlee.  The numbers beside the cemetery name are from the actual map, which shows the location of the cemetery.  To order a copy of the map, please contact Gene Gravlee at:

185 Grey Horse Lane
Sumiton, AL 35148

Please note:  See More Cemeteries for some cemetery transcriptions that I haven't yet been able to pinpoint which ones match Gene's map!  Also be sure to check Church Records for more info on some of these cemeteries. 

3/31/2005:  Paul Hays has taken the cemetery listing below and created a reference to the township and range for each cemetery!  Thanks, Paul!  Lamar County Township/Range Cemetery Index
