William Luther COLE, b 1902 d 22 Feb 1904. He was the son of James Wiley Clifford COLE & Bertha HULSEY.You can see that his original burial place was listed incorrectly.

The public is hereby notified that what has heretofore been known as the Clapp's Factory burying ground has been permanently closed, and no further burials will be permitted. CHATTAHOOCHEE FALLS CO. [Columbus (GA) Daily Enquirer-Sun newspaper, Tuesday, 03 NOV 1903]
Little William Luther COLE, the 21 months old son of Mr. and Mrs. J. W. COLE, died Monday afternoon at 1 o'clock from the effects of burns which he received last Saturday three weeks ago. Everything that was possible was done for him, but despite all this, he died Monday at the hour stated. The grief-stricken parents have the deep sympathy of their many friends in their bereavement. The funeral took place yesterday afternoon at 3 o'clock from the home, No. 212 Twenty-sixth street, conducted by Rev. J. G. HARRISON [of Broad Street Church], the interment being at Clapp's Factory burying ground above the city.
[Columbus (GA) Daily Enquirer-Sun newspaper, Wednesday, 24 FEB 1904] IS NOT NOW USED FOR BURIAL PURPOSES A day or two ago in a notice which appeared in The Enquirer-Sun of the funeral and place of interment of little William Luther Cole, it was stated that the interment would be at Clapp's Factory burying ground. This statement was incorrect, as the interment was at Girard Cemetery. The Clapp's burying ground is not being used for burial purposes any longer, having been closed to the public.
