No I do not have a thing for cemeteries. This is the second post about cemeteries in the last few months. I came across a brief article in the Sandy Springs Reporter about this small family plot that was found in back of 795 Sudbury Road in Sandy Springs. Some think that the plots are from the first few settlers in the Sandy Springs and Dunwoody area. The Ball Family is buried there and the headstones date back to the mid-1800’s. It looks like a family was buried there.

Being the Sandy Springs History buff that I am, I got in my car and punched in 795 Sudbury Road into my GPS. It brought me to a location just a couple of miles from my home. The cemetery is located behind the house. You can use the driveway but be mindful that this is private property. There is right of way to the cemetery. You will see the signs. Do not disturb the site. If you know anything about this family buried there, please contact the number in the article.

Have fun and don’t be to scared!
