Whorton Ballard, is said to be buried at the first location of the Concord Meeting House est. abt. 1828. There is no record proof of this that I can find. If true It would be in the same Cemetery as RWS Jacob Redwine Sr. Likely in an unmarked grave.
This Cemetery is located in Coweta Co. on the old W. H. Steed place. The log structure was located in the extreme South East corner of the 8th land district, in the South East corner of land lot 16, about 150 feet from the rough rock marking the corner of land district 5, 6, 7, and 8 of the original survey of Coweta Co. This rock also marks the corner of lots 241, of the 5th district, 16 of the 6th district, 1 of the 7th district, and 16 0f the 8th district. The four marked graves using headstones with nothing written on them are in lot 241 of the 5th district , about 75 feet from the corner of the four districts.
To get to this Cemetery, starting from the intersection of Main St. or State route 29 on the South side of Palmetto GA and Bobby Lee Cook Road. Take Tommy Lee Cook Rd. West about 3 miles out and west of Palmetto. turn left on Gosdine Rd. then back to the left on Ousley Rd. Go a few hundred yards to the end of the road were Mr. Murray Mayfield now lives at 90 Ousley Rd on the Right or South side.
In 1996 again in 2002 Mr. Murray Mayfield ( ph. 770-463-2110 ) lives in the last house on the right. The trail to the Cemetery is on the west side of his property and at that time he was keeping it in good repair. Mr. Mayfield told us at that time (1996 again in 2002 ) he would show others the way to the Cemetery. He would like for you to call ahead if you can. Mr. Mayfield does not own the property around the area of the graves. He tells me that a Mr. A. J. Cobb owns it at this time.
