The Bryant-Bragg cemetery can be found in the Madison County Georgia Cemetery Book published in 1986 by the Madison County Heritage Foundation as cemetery number 20 in GMD 438, aka Mill District. On my visit to the cemetery on 6 Nov 2016 the cemetery was enclosed and gated and is well kept up by the property owners. Not far from this site must have been where the Bragg Ferry was in operation in the 1800's. The cemetery is located on a hill overlooking the Hudson and Broad Rivers. Besides the two upright engraved gravestones were many graves marked with field stones, which indicates that it is an old family cemetery. Prior to the Civil War the land owners were white; names of the original land owners in this specific area were, John Bryant, George Payton, Andrew McEver, Humphrey & Joseph Bragg. Based on census records, there were numerous Mulato's and Black's, probably freed slaves living in this area in the 1870's and after. Both Sarah Bryant and William Bragg, were both listed on the 1900 Census as being of the black race indicating they were probably freed Slaves that were given the last names of their masters.
This cemetery was created by Larry Payton on 25 Oct 2016.
