Bobby Rivers Cemetery

This cemetery is easy to find and is located just off Barnesville Rd, Griffin, GA. Its about a mile south of the intersection of Barnesville Road and Rehoboth Church Road on Barnesville Road and will be on your right side. If you get to Sanders Road you have gone too far.

There are only a few remaining headstones there now but the site is kept in excellent condition. - David Coleman

A Mr. Willis L. Biles stated that he remembered counting eighteen graves here at one time and that it was called the Bobby Rivers Cemetery. In the process of widening the road the cemetery was found, and the road was made to veer to the left. Some graves may have been destroyed at that time. It`s possible that some graves may have been destroyed through plowing the field, as well. There seem to be about eight or ten graves remaining. Some are reasonably sure that a Revolutionary soldier and his wife (Phillip Jackson and Anna Vinson Jackson) are buried here; and some members of the Rivers Family are interred here.

The burial spots for Philip A. JACKSON and his wife Anna are not present at this site as per survey and pictures. A visit was made to the site where Philip and Anna are buried in 1995 and this cemetery does not fit the description. See picture below good pictures (this picture was taken in 1995).
