BROWN CEMETERY (on Corinth Road)

This cemetery is on the Corinth Road about a mile from the Corinth Church on property owned by Ken Hines. It is fenced and very well maintained. In addition to the 24 inscribed markers, there are 10-15 fieldstones. In some cases inscribed stones appear to have been added alongside the fieldstones.
Other sources indicate possible names for the unmarked graves as footnoted at the end of the table.
