Search Benjamin Plaster Family Cemetery:

Per Franklin Garrett, noted Atlanta historian, in his Atlanta and Environs book, the unmarked final resting place of Benjamin Plaster (early Pioneer of this area) and several of his immediate family members is located "on the crest of a hill several hundred feet south of the house and overlooking Peachtree Creek, in a right angle formed by that stream and the main line of the Southern Railway to Washington". The house was located at the corner of modern day Peachtree Hills Avenue and Lindbergh Drive (roughly 33.820860, -84.373196) . Currently this area is developed completely so the cemetery is likely built over or remains undiscovered. A book was written in 1997 entitled "Peachtree Creek" and the author attempted to locate the cemetery but found no trace. The author did find homeless vagrants living on the spot that supposedly was the cemetery (a high knoll) who claimed to have lived there in tents for over 10 years, had no knowledge of any graves or grave sites. With the area very dense with development over the years, the graves may have been moved - Possibly to nearby Rock Spring Presbyterian Church or Sardis Methodist Church. Rock Spring and Sardis both have cemeteries that have interments of Plaster descendants .
