Rose Hill Cemetery, Macon Georgia
In my search for cemetery databases this week I came across a blog related to a cemetery in Macon, Georgia. Macon is located in Bibb County in the central part of the state. Rose Hill Cemetery was established in 1840. Currently 170 of those interred in the cemetery have been profiled on the blog. Click one of the 136 surnames in the alphabetical list to open a new page with biographical information, obituaries, tombstone photographs, and other images. Click the Surnames tab to return to the alphabetical list.
For some surnames you will find multiple blog entries for a single individual. For other surnames there are entries for more than one individual with that surname who is buried in the cemetery. Among the notable individuals buried in the cemetery are two members of the Allman Brothers band--Duane Allman and Berry Oakley.
Alta Vista Cemetery, Gainesville, Georgia  
The city of Gainesville is located in northeastern Georgia in Hall County. It is the county seat. Gainesville has made the database for Alta Vista Cemetery available on its website. The cemetery comprises the original cemetery, established in 1872, a private cemetery, the old Woodlawn Cemetery, and at least one family cemetery. Those buried there include Revolutionary and Civil War veterans, two former Georgia governors, an astronaut, a rocket scientist, city officials, and a circus performer.
Click the Alta Vista Cemetery Search button to begin your search. You may search the database by last name, first name, date interred, section, and lot. There is also an AKA (also known as) search box, which searches the first, middle, last name, and AKA fields. The data fields in the search results are title, first name, middle name, last name, AKA, Jr/Sr, date of birth, date of death, date interred, section/block/lot/grave, and funeral home.
