|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
The Wynne family cemetery was reburied to the Wynne-Russell House location in 1985
The Wynne family cemetery is on the grounds of the historic Wynne-Russell House (c. 1826). The house and cemetery are located at 4685 Wynne-Russell Dr. Thomas Wynne and his wife, the former Mary Prince Benson, came to Gwinnett county and settled here in 1826. (The house is called Wynne-Russell because it passed through both sides of the couple's families.) The Wynne plantation purportedly consisted of several hundred acres and extended south along Jackson Creek. Now, the homestead sits on grounds comprising less than one acre. The original location of the Wynne family cemetery was to the south, across Hwy 29. However, as previously stated, in 1985, the graves were moved to their present location next to the home. The property is now owned by the city of Lilburn.
