Cemetery notes and/or description:
(T19S-R6E-S19)

This cemetery was listed in "Talladega County, Alabama Tombstone Inscriptions of All Known Cemeteries 1700's to 1987", Volume II, c. 1990 by Joseph W. and Francis S. Upchurch, The Gregath Co., Cullman, Alabama. In 1987 there were four marked graves identified as being in this small family plot, access to which was gained on Forest Route #621-E in the Talladega National Forest. The directions were:

"Travel approx. 2.6 mi. s. of Waldo Bridge; turn r(w) on 621 (forestry access rd.); travel to 621-E (approx 2 mi.); turn l (w) and travel 1.5 mi. to park at "Property Boundary" sign. Follow Lindy Ann branch (w & s) approx. 1 mi. Cem. is on top of hill s. of the branch. Guide: TR".

In 1987, the Upchurches were guided to the site by Mr. Tommy Robbs ("TR").

The 1850 Federal Census of Talladega County lists the family of Watson and Mahuldah Robbs, 48 and 49 years old, respectively. They had four sons: Darius, 19 yrs. old; James, 17 yrs. old; Edward, 10 yrs. old; and John W., 7 yrs. old. All were born in South Carolina except John, who was born in Georgia.

Forest Route 621-E is now 621-C and 621-D, with locked gates at the entrances prohibiting wheeled vehicle access during certain months. The Lindy Ann Branch is identified on the U.S.D.A. Forest Service "Porter Gap Quadrangle" topographic map. Photos of the general site were provided by staff of the Talladega Ranger District, U.S.D.A. Forest Service.
