Go to USGS' website and do a search in their GNIS database:

http://geonames.usgs.gov/pls/gnispublic/f?p=135:1:2060474008079020::NO:1:P1_SHOW_ADV,P1_SHOW_FIPS55:,

Use search parameters: Cobb, Georgia and feature type = cemetery, don't use a name. You should get a list of 193 cemeteries. I didn't find one named Acworth but you'll find several cemeteries in the town of Acworth. Perhaps the name changed or else the newspaper simply meant that she was buried in a cemetery in the town of Acworth. Likely there are cemetery transcription books for the area, that's what I would look for.....Rick
