|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
From "Old Cemeteries in Laurens County Georgia" presented by the John Laurens Chapter of the DAR.
"Lovett Methodist Church was orgainzed between the years from 1870 and 1875. It was orginally built about one mile from Lovett, Georgia which is in Laurens County, almost mid-way between the towns of Dublin and Wrightsville. At the time the Church was called Pre Domina. It remained at the orginal location for a number of years. In the year of 1899,a site was obtained and the Church was moved to Lovett, Georgia, which by this time had dveloped into quite a nice little town. The church at the time was known as Lovett Mthodist Church. The cemetery was very close to the original site of the Church. Many who live in Lovett now have loved ones buried there. The church at Pre Domina was torn down, the materials moved to Lovett, and construction was begun on the church in 1899....." It has since been moved to different location on Lovett Road.
It is not known who first owned the land, but today it is surrounded by Rex Jackson's land.
Directions to the Lovett Cemetery are as follows: Proceed from either Dublin or Wrightsville either North or South on US Highway 319 for about 10 miles. Turn east on paved Lovett Road, travel about two miles to the intersection of Lovett road and Brewton-Dublin Road. Turn left (north) on the paved road towards Wrightsville. Turn left (west) after .6 miles on a dirt road/path through a gate that is normally open. This road is not passable in wet weather. Proceed straight up the hill about .3 miles. The cemetery is to the right of a small clearing big enough to park and turn around. The cemetery is grown up with small trees and brush and is not maintained execept for a few family plots cared for by living relatives.
