Graves

In the early 2000s, members of the University of Georgia's Horticulture Department completed an innovatory of burial locations in Gospel Pilgrim Cemetery. In addition to noting the location of marked and unmarked graves, the data records tombstone inscriptions: decedents' names, date of births, date of deaths, epithets, and iconography.
