Subject: Pre-civil war Cemetaries

Am interested in finding my ggggrandfather's
grave. He died in February, 1850 in what is
now Dadeville,Alabama in Tallapoosa County.
Are there any such outlined pre-civil war
cemetaries or any graves found on private
lands that date back to this time period.
Please e-mail me at
if you have this information. His name was
William Graham Quinn of Georgia and he died
of a fever there in Tallapoosa County. His
widow eventually married John T. Carter of
this same county and moved west into the
present Mississippi county of Scott.
Any information regarding such a cemetary
would be greatly appreciated.
