Thank you for the information about Red Mountain Cemetery. It is hard to imagine the City of Birmingham building over a cemetery without first removing the graves.
I could read the text on the Lane Park marker.
Thanks again for your efforts.
|jgables||Regarding Red Mountian Cemetery|
I did some research on this cemetery. I live in Birmingham, AL and this graveyard was used by the city to bury it's indigent until the early 1930's. After years of non-use the property was puchased and the graveyard was covered over and built on. The graves were never removed. The property is now part of the Birmingham Botanical Gardens and Birmingham Zoo. This information was gathered from the Birmingham Public Library. I tried to locate this cemetery on a seperate request and when, according to the map the property seemed to be in the loations noted above. I thought the map was either wrong or the cemetery was somehow located somewhere on the grounds of the zoo or gardens and had been lost over the years. So, I googled the name of the cemetery and found the link describing the details. It is sad that these families have now been lost to future generations.
