Butler County, Alabama

Sellers Cemetery

Butler County

partial survey provided by Norma King

Directions: Go south from Georgiana on Hwy 31. Just past the railroad tracks is a Phillips 66 station on the left. Take a right onto old highway 31. Turn left on first paved road. Then turn right onto Norrell Ave., left on Dunham Road, then left onto dirt road that is beside a sizable brick house. The cemetery is on this road which resembles a logging road. There are no houses on the road and it dead-ends into locked gates. The cemetery is on the right about 100 yards before the gates.

Persoanl Note: The cemetery is very remote and I would not recommend anyone go to the cemetery alone. I was fortunate enough to have a local family offer to escort me - otherwise, I would not have found this cemetery. To my surprise, the cemetery itself is in good condition and appears to be routinely maintained.

Additional Note: This is only a partial listing - I am sure I missed some due to the limited time I had at the cemetery. There are also unmarked graves. The notes in parentheses I added from information I obtained from other sources. The notes on John Wesley and Margaret Ledlow and Estelle Ledlow Ward are from the obituary of Margaret Ledlow in the Greenville newspaper.

I am researching the Ledlow family and would appreciate correspondence from anyone researching this family or with any information on this family.
