Bragg Cemetery
Butler County
Alabama  USA

Cemetery notes and/or description:
The Bragg Cemetery was established by Dr. Thomas Miles Bragg near his home in northwest Butler County, Alabama about twelve miles northwest of Greenville on County Road 54 (also known as the Ridge Road). The Bragg home site and cemetery are located on a narrow, rural dirt road on the south side of the Ridge Road, in a timberland area across from the Crenshaw Cemetery which is on the north side of the Ridge Road. Only three flat slab gravestones remained when this cemetery was first surveyed by Myra Ware Williams Crenshaw in 1965-1966, but sunken areas indicated additional burials. Her survey was published in the Butler County Historical Society Quarterly, Vol. III, Number 2 (June 1967). She noted that "There is a hole between the graves of Zebulin and Catherine, with a few rocks with mortar clinging to them. It appears that there was an adult grave here, also, but the tombstone is missing." This grave is probably that of Dr. Thomas M. Bragg himself, who has a memorial marker in Greenville's Magnolia Cemetery, but whose obituary states that "His remains will be buried to-day, with Masonic honors, at his old homestead about 12 miles from town."
Location: Township 11 N, Range 13 E, Section 30. GPS: N 31 degrees, 54.073" W 086 degrees, 47.501"
