WARREN CEMETERY, Conecuh Co, Ala
Surveyed by Sadie Sparks, November 15, 2000

Directions to Warren Family Cemetery from Evergreen, Ala- go out County Rd # 29S, to intersection of Co. Rd #85, ("Y") bear right on 85 and go to Co Rd 87; turn right on 87 and go to New Hope Baptist Church on the right side of road. The cemetery is across the driveway just past the church on right side of Co Rd 87.

At one time it had a very ornate iron fence around it, but now it is laying flat on the ground. It has recently been cleaned of underbrush and mowed . The large flat marble slabs are laying flat on the ground now-They appear to have been the top section of marble tombs which have been opened either by time or vandals.

The marker for Mary M. Warren, wife of H. W. Warren and Amanda N. Boulware is all on one smaller marble marker-Amanda Boulware on left side and Mary M. Warren on right side- with a picture of a pair of clasped hands at the top.

There is also an adult size marble tomb with no marking of any kind on it, as well as at least 12-15 other graves there, some with only rocks marking the spot and some with nothing marking the spot, only sink holes indicating graves.

Marble slab marker (broken into 2 pieces, placed back together) Reads:
"This marble is dedicated to the memory of Hinchey Warren, a native of
Georgia, who departed this life February 28th, 1855 in the 68th year of
his age

Being possessed of great energy and a strong intellect, he was
imminently successful in business.

For several years before his death he was an active and pious member of
the Beulah Baptist Church and was supported amidst the terrors of death
by the consolations of the Gospel.

A few only of his children have been spared to execute this act of
devotion, this last tribute of respect to his departed remains.
In memory of his exe____ied virtues, being sensible of the irreparable
loss they have sustained and while gratitude remains on earth, his
affectionate children will never cease to lament a good father and
husband."

"When the good man yields his breath
For a home above the skies;
Bright beyond the gulf of death
Lo! the land of promise lies.
Peace to our dear father's shade
In that land where sorrows cease
And to father's ashes laid
In the earth's cold bosom, peace."
Tombstone by J. Turner, Mobile
