Sorry Michelle,

In a prior post, I mentioned that Riverdale Cemetery is
in Columbus, Ga, Muscogee County, Ga.

The dates of Death I posted came from the Sexton's office at the cemetery.

Bibb City ,Ga is part of Muscogee County, Ga. A separate little incorporated Town,north of Columbus.This is where
Thomas L Tanton lived and George W Tanton lived in Beallwood, part of Columbus very near Bibb City. I guess it could be described as small neighborhoods in Muscogee County,Ga.

This is a very helpful site in Muscogee Co,GA for researchers.

County changes through the early years

Date From To
1827 Lee Muscogee
1827 Muscogee Harris

The newspaper was The Columbus Enquirer-Sun I believe at the time.

Hope this clears that up, Let me know if you have any questions
