Mims Cemetery
Chilton County
Alabama  USA

Cemetery notes and/or description:
There are several Mims cemeteries in Chilton County, Alabama. This cemetery was for family members and friends of Edward Mims 1816-1895. The location of the cemetery is about 100 yards out in wooded area of a field near the intersection of County Road 7 (aka Scott Drive) and Bob Cooedy Road, before you reach the L&N Railroad tracks. The old homeplace location of Bill Mims was directly across the L&N tracks. Gradually over the years all of the remaining memorial markers were vandalized and removed by unknown parties. Bits and pieces of memorials can still be found as well as numerous sunken places in rows where graves were. In 1901 the Maple Springs Baptist Church was formed and many of the burials there were reinterred in the Church cemetery. Some may simply have had memorial markers placed at Maple Springs church and their remains left at the Mims cemetery. Controversy of course exist. It is known that some remains definitely were moved, while no attempts were made to move other burials and those markers remained until vandalized.
