Research Trip - Adamson Cemetery, aka Pleasant Grove Cemetery

The second cemetery where we had success was Adamson Cemetery in Heard County, Georgia. It's located less than a mile from the Alabama state line on State Road 109 in Heard County. Apparently, Adamson was the original name for the cemetery but, even though GoogleMaps shows that's still the name, the sign says it's Pleasant Grove Cemetery.

Buried in this cemetery are my 3rd great-grandparents, Anna Finney and David Gamble; their daughter, Mary Gamble Bennett; and their son, Thomas Ewing Gamble and his wife, Martha Connely. Other relatives buried here are Nancy Elizabeth Jackson Adamson (sister of my 2nd great-grandmother, Charlotte Jackson Lanier), her husband, Seaborn Henry Adamson and some of their children. There is also an unknown Union soldier buried in this small country cemetery in what was definitely Confederate territory. (More about that story in a later post.)

David Gamble's marker has already been the subject for a Tombstone Tuesday post and the other individual markers will be in the next few weeks. Below are some overview shots of this cemetery.
