|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
HISTORY: The Adams Cemetery was established about 1860 on land cleared, farmed and homesteaded by the family of David Fanning Adams Sr. The old Adams family cemetery is located southwest of Kinston, Alabama, near the present-day terminus of CR 483. Over the years, the original grave markers were lost to neglect and vandalism. However, the cemetery is known to include twenty-six unmarked graves, including the grave of the family patriarch and Alabama pioneer, David Fanning Adams Sr.
DIRECTIONS: Begin at the intersection of CR 52 and CR 189 at Kinston, Alabama. From this point, proceed south on CR 479. Look for rural mail box number 483. Then turn left onto CR 483 (an unpaved road). Follow CR 483 for about one mile to mail box number 1098 on the right side of CR 483. The road terminates just beyond the house at that address.
There is a gate on the right side of the road which opens to a field. The Adams Cemetery is located about 100 yards to the left of the gate. The cemetery is located on private property. Permission to visit the cemetery may be needed.
