The Anthony Garnett Smith, Sr. family cemetery is located on Allen Road in Crawford County, Georgia. The family cemetery is about 100 yards from the ca. 1830 Rev. Anthony Garnett Smith, Sr. home. The first known burial was Zillah Allen Smith Johnson (May 29, 1806 - May 23, 1832), a daughter of Rev. Anthony Garnett Smith, Sr. and Mary "Polly" Allen Smith.
The 192 acre property surrounding the cemetery is currently owned by John H. Wilson, Jr. The property is listed as parcel #C064 001 in the records of the Crawford County, Georgia Board of Tax Assessors.
There is an historic rock fence surrounding this small cemetery.
In his 1839 Crawford County will, Rev. Anthony Garnett Smith, Sr. states:
"My wish and desire is that when it may be practicable that 2 marble slabs shall be procured from Cherokee, one to be placed over my grave, the other over my beloved wife's after her decease. Enclosed with this instrument will be a short epitaph subject to the revision of my family.
The dividend going to Nathan Johnson's children above named shall be paid to him who is their natural guardian, and he is hereby authorized if he thinks proper to apply a part of that amount to placing a tomb stone (a marble slab) over his late wife [Zillah A. Smith Johnson] (my daughter's) grave.
I hereby direct that a solid stone wall be made around my grave yard of sufficient rise for the use of my family's burying ground, and in case of any sale the burying ground or grave yard be exempted and provided(?) for as the law may direct."
