Smyrna (Cobb County)
|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
According to Cobb County Georgia Cemeteries Vol 1 - Robert Daniell began the cemetery during the Civil War. Family members had been previously buried in the Maloney Springs Cemetery in Fair Oaks, but when Robert's family started dying of smallpox, residents, out of fear of contagion, raised a pettion to prevent his passing by. When his wife Naomi died, he buried her in the woods near his home, located near the mill he built with Ruff on Nickajack Creek.
