|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
THIS CEMETERY IS NOT NOR HAS IT EVER BEEN PART OF RIVERVIEW MEMORIAL PARK CEMETERY REGARDLESS OF WHAT THE BIO NOTES SAY ON THE RIVERVIEW SITE.
You must go through the entrance of Riverview Memorial Park gates and then walk straight ahead into the woods. This was originally the Thomas Hooper Family Cemetery, then was later renamed Hooper Mcwilliams Cemetery. after Thomas Hooper died and his daughter, who was married to a McWilliams, renamed it Hooper McWilliams. It is very over grown and you can not see the entrance without moving brush around. When the property for Riverview Memorial Park was purchased from part of the original Thomas Hooper property it did not include the family cemetery, therefore Riverview does not maintain it. The upkeep of this cemetery was by family volunteers only until the last family member to keep it up became ill and asked the Boy Scouts of America to help. They cleaned up the cemetery once about 1995 and erected the sign to the entrance that is seen today. Property records show that Riverview owns property on one side of Hooper McWilliams and Georgia Power owns the property on the other side. Hooper McWilliams shows as an old family cemetery and belongs to no one.
