Enon Baptist Church

I have completed a survey of the Enon Baptist Church cemetery and hope, in the near future, to have it available online. Anyone with information on persons buried in the cemetery, either in marked or unmarked graves, please contact me. I will post this information for all through usgenweb, lumpkin co, cemeteries. Surnames known from marked graves: Abercrombie, Armour, Chapman, Cochran, Fitts, Hollifield, Hooper, Jenkins, Keenum, Loggins, Maness, McDonald, Rider, Sullens, Wood

Enon Baptist Church is located on Hwy. 60, between Ga. 400 and Dahlonega. The cemetery sits, shaded, on a gentle hill rising behind the church.

In this cemetery rests at least four C.S.A. Soldiers. All of the men buried here that were of serving age during the War of Northern Aggression served in the C.S.A.

The oldest marked grave appears to be that of James W. Keenum, who died 8 August 1863. He died in a Knoxville, Tenn. hospital from injuries suffered.

Since the church was not established until 1905 some research is needed here.
