For clarity, this cemetery is now designated as the “old” Calvary Baptist Cemetery since a new church and cemetery was established 1-1/4 miles away on Peach Road in 1966. (The new cemetery was first used in 1963.) See also: Calvary Baptist Church & Cemetery .
A distinction between the ‘old’ and ‘new’ was needed. This early site is still chosen for burials on occasion. It's a peaceful, woodland setting - a good choice.
The oldest readable headstone here at “old” Cavalry is 1911; and, the most recent burials at this writing were in 2013 (four). There are several apparent, but unmarked, graves which may date back as far as 1866 when the church was organized and this cemetery was then the originally used site. Two 1925 graves said to be here (Jeff & Robt Gooding) were not found.
Current-day newspaper obituaries, and funeral homes, continue to simply mention “Calvary Cemetery” as the final resting place for new burials regardless of which site is used. NOTE: Find A Grave contributors wishing to enter a new memorial need to first discover which burial site is being used.
