|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
This cemetery is located on Kimberly Clark land in northwest Coosa Co., AL up the hill from the Mitchell Dam Reservoir and Hatchett Creek and where the town of Dollar once existed.
Dollar serviced the communities of Hatchett Creek with a mercantile store, bank, post office, cotton gin, grist mill, saw mill, and blacksmith shop, etc.
When Mitchell Dam was built, the town and surrounding farms and communities were abandoned and the post office was moved to Verbena on Nov. 20, 1921.
The same year people began leaving due to potential problems that the reservoir would bring with disease carrying mosquitoes, which had been a plague to this community and the entire nation.
This cemetery can only be accessed by traveling the rough logging roads or by boat. A trip to this cemetery should only be taken with the aid of an excellent guide and with a four-wheel drive vehicle.
I would like to thank my cousin, Billy Parker, whom I have had the privilege of knowing. Without him, the pictures of the grave markers would not be possible. I also would like to thank the Boy Scouts of Verbena, Chilton Co., AL for their restoration of the cemetery stones and erecting a sign.
