|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
The Young Blitch cemetery is north of Statesboro and southwest of Blitch. There is a photo of an aerial view showing the location of the cemetery at:

The road to the left of the road name is the one on which the cemetery is located. There is a small dark spot of trees on the left of the dirt road. That is the cemetery. The instructions I had were: Out North Main St., then Lake View Rd. for 10 miles; turn left at Blitch. The road you will turn on is "Old River Road". The cemetery is about 1/2 mile on left, on a hill. The cemetery is in a farmers field. There is a dirt road leading up to the cemetery. We drove up the dirt road as far as we could. The road had been washed out by rain, so we walked the rest of the way. You can tell it was a really nice cemetery at one time. There were crumbling wrought iron railings and the grave markers were impressive.
