This cemetery was called New Prospect Missionary Baptist Cemetery. When Ft. Benning staff members were compiling a list of cemeteries, they did not know the name and called it "TOMBLIN" because that surname recurred the most among the marked burials at the time of their survey.

Birth date inferred from age at time of death.
