Cemetery notes and/or description:
In order to secure a final resting place for his family, Thomas J. Doster set aside, in his will, land for the Doster Cemetery. The will was dated 25 April, 1873, and was probated 3 Aug., 1874. "One or more acres shall be set apart around the family graveyard for a burying ground and used for no other purpose but a cemetery." Located on Creek Nation Rd. in Jackson County, Georgia, the cemetery is shaded by a small grove of trees and is lovingly maintained by Doster descendants.

Now buried in the Doster Cemetery are Dosters, Phillips, Roberts, Brooks, Irvins and 21 other associated families. These names include one mysterious stone that reads, "ON TAT WA Bornd Sept the 21 1845 Died Aug the 22 1873." There are many graves whose markings have long been lost to the weather and vegetation.

The cemetery is a testament to the hardships faced by these families over the past 150 years. The average life span on the marked stones is approximately 37 years. You will notice the large number of infant graves and the large number of military tombstones. Men of these families fought in virtually every war, the military stones have been set to honor their service.
