Cemetery notes and/or description: Cherry Log Baptist Church is located eleven miles north of Ellijay, on the right side of Highway 515, just south of the Gilmer-Fannin County line.
This listing is only for the cemetery located adjacent to the church. The earliest burial in this cemetery was in 1977.
The original cemetery for this church has burials dating back to the 1860s, and is listed separately as the Cherry Log Baptist Church Old Cemetery. It is located on a tree-covered hillside on the opposite side of Hwy 515 and is not visible from the church. To get to the old cemetery from the church -- turn south on Hwy 515; go only one-tenth of a mile; turn right onto a very narrow unmarked dirt road which winds uphill to the cemetery. Many of the early tombstones in this old cemetery are hand-carved field-stones which have long been illegible.
