At Ridgewood Plantation estate in Upatoi, Georgia, travel east on Macon Road to Upatoi. At Jenkins Road, turn left. Then take the first right turn onto Heritage Drive, which circles the large,old main house. About halfway around the circle, on the right side, is a new brick house (1981). To the left and behind that home lies the cemetery, on the edge of the woods, with a cast-iron fence around it. It is on property of the Dennis C. THOMPSON family, formerly owned by Mr. and Mrs. Wayne PATTERSON. Mrs. PATTERSON lived in the large old home (1981) and gave much information on the cemetery. [Land Dist. 10, lot #288.]
The Chattahoochee Valley Cemeteries Society, established December 2010, is researching cemeteries in Muscogee County and those surrounding Muscogee. Many cemeteries in the county were surveyed in the late 1900's and of those surveyed, many have been neglected and/or forgotten. The purpose of the Society is "to gather an umbrella organization that cares about our local/regional cemeteries to educate leaders and others and to ensure preservation and continued interest: to be custodians, guardians and caretakers for those cemeteries that have none. Our cemeteries are a community asset and part of our cultural heritage. Not only are they to be respected because of burials of local families, they are a significant resource to genealogists and family researchers."
