Giles Co Cemetery Listing
Kedron Cemetery

Here is the information I copied from the tombstones in early August, 1999. Some of the tombstones were illegible. Some were nearly blank, some were merely very hard to read. Perhaps on a cooler day, someone would be interested in adding information to this list. I no longer live in Giles County, but my parents do, and I may be able to answer questions/corrections about this listing when I visit them.

I've listed the stones in order from the top of the hill, from left to right as you face the cemetary at the foot of the hill. There is a chance that I may have copied some information incorrectly; if so, my apologies! It was mighty hot that day, and I abbreviated some dates in my notes, so this transcript is NOT 100% verbatim. I did indicate every place where I was not sure of either the carving or my notes.
