English Family Cemetery
 
An account by Barbara English West
 
English Family Cemetery
 
Family cemetery located in a field, surrounded by large cedar trees on a county road south west of Oglethorpe, Georgia.
 
 
Elizabeth English (Sampson's sister, and likely the first person buried in cemetery.)

1 brick enclosure, no markers

[Note: Elizabeth English, b. 13 April 1777; d. likely after 1850, Macon County, Georgia. Basis for her death date is that she is listed in the 1850 census in the household of our Sampson J. English; not present in the 1860 census. It is probable that the brick enclosure would be the grave of Elizabeth English. It is also probable that she never married.]

 
 
Sampson J. English (patriarch; husband of Frances Hardison English.)
Samson English
2 January 1790 1875 (should read 1865)

[Note Death date on marker incorrect and should read 1865. First, we know this because a notice of his death is found in church minutes of the Upatoi Baptist association Sept 8, 1866. Secondly, Sampson J. English's estate was probated in Jan 1866 in Macon County, GA.]

 
 
Frances Hardison English
Frances (Hardison) English, wife of Sampson English (2nd wife)
(1791 died after 1870)

[Note: Frances "Fanny" Hardison English married Sampson J. English abt. 1815. She is listed as head of household in the 1870 census so we know death date to be sometime after. Believed to be descended from the Jasper Hardison family of North Carolina, no proof at this time.]
