|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
There are actually two burial plots, the old Emmons Cemetery, and the new Emmons Cemetery. The two are divided by Hwy-113. Eastward off 113 on Rawls Road is the older Emmons Cemetery. Westward off 113 on Hendricks-Emmons Road is the new Emmons Cemetery. For less confusion the two plots are locally referred to as "Emmons Cemetery East" and "Emmons Cemetery West". The old Emmons Cemetery contains family names other than Emmons, but the new Emmons Cemetery contains only the Emmons family name. The establishment of two cemeteries came about due to the considerable distance between Emmons east and west property boundaries in Escambia County. The old Emmons Cemetery allowed pioneer settlers to bury their dead on Emmons property, while the new Emmons Cemetery holds no attraction to the surrounding community due to the establishment of cemeteries such as Wallace, Magnolia, Canaan, New Bethlehem, Beasley, Gravel Hill, and Little Escambia.
