RE: Green - McCraw Cemetery Location
Tari, Yes. He's my 3rd Great Grand-father. I found the cemetery this year. I grew up in Ball Ground and NEVER new about the cemetery. Found the cemetery on Findagrave, and had no clue where it was. I found a rough location in a Cemeteries of Cherokee County book by Shirley Morris, and then I drove down Flatbottom Road, stopping at every other house, asking locals if they knew where it was. Great way to meet rednecks! Even met a girl I'd gone to elementary school with, and she scared me!!! But seriously, she was a great help. Are you related as well? I'm descended from Georgia Anne McCraw, and I don't even know where she's buried for sure. I am JAMartin66 on Ancestry.com, and have downloaded all four McCraw boys CSA Service Records off of Footnote.com, as well as George's. The boys all fought in the 28th Georgia Infantry together. I'm thrilled how much progress I've made the last 2-3 weeks. Good luck finding the cemetery. George McCraw has the nicest tombstone, and most of the rest are stones marking the heads and feet. BTW, where do you live? Jim

Green - McCraw Cemetery Location
Start at Ball Ground, Cherokee, Georgia. Head East towards Free Home. The Green-McCraw Cemetery is located off of Flatbottom Trail Road at a new subdivision that has been cleared to build, but no houses exist as of yet. Turn into the Heritage Plantation subdivision, and as the road first dips, and starts to come up to it's first intersecting road at Heritage Plantation Trail, pull off of the road on the right and park. Look over your right shoulder (behind and to the right), you will see a gravel road going into the woods. I saw the tombstones from the road. It's literally yards from the new road.
