Text:

Traditional history says this cemetery was established in 1838 by the Smyrna Methodist Church. However, Wylie Flannigan of Campbell County, Ga. took title to Land Lot 522 in which the cemetery is located, on July 1, 1843 after paying Georgia $5.00 for the 40 acre lot distributed in the 1832 Land Lottery. The first marked grave is the one for Elijah Fleming who died April 8, 1848.
