|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
(Taken from the History of Grover Hill by Laurence R. Hipp, published in 1971.)
Amelia Pleasants was the last person to be buried in the Wilson Cemetery, in the year 1914. This small cemetery located in the Southeast Quarter of Section 9 of Washington Township, was established very early by the residents of the Black community in the immediate area. On January 3, 1880, Harrison and Caroline Wilson deeded to the trustees of the African Methodist Episcopal (AME) Church the land for this cemetery; the deed is recorded in Volume 28, page 180, Paulding County Record of Deeds. The Black settlement in the area also contained a church and a school. Except in dry seasons, this cemetery cannot be reached by auto. It is located one mile east and two and one-quarter miles north of Roselms, thence west along a fence-line, a distance of about eighty rods. During the winter months, when the tree foliage is gone, the cemetery may be seen from the road south of the cemetery at a point near the former home of Pearl H. and Mary Taylor.
