Cemetery notes and/or description: Directions: From the intersection of Highway 177 and Highway 39 go East on Highway 39 approx 9 miles, Bates sits on the left side of the road, it is right accross the road from the Seminole County line sign. It sits right next to Violet Springs Cemetery and is seperated by it's own wall and gate. It is a seperate cemetery from Violet Springs and also Konowa Cemetery which is accross the country road within Seminole County. Other online listings for Bates note that many of the stones have been vandalized however I only noticed one stone that was missing. I believe that many of the original stones have been repaired or replaced. This is a small cemetery I have photographed all the marked graves in the cemetery except the one that was missing the stone (base only exsists).
