Bynum Cemetery, Houston County

This cemetery is located near Crockett. It has a designated historical marker.The headstones were photographed by Judi Crowhurst who kindly donated them to this project.

Please note that the comments column contains my personal observations and things I thought would be helpful. Also, I recorded every marker, which means, one person may be recorded twice if they had two markers (i.e. a military marker in addition to their family marker). If you have any questions after viewing the list, please e-mail me at Letty Harrington.

The following is a list of names of people supposed to have been buried in the Bynum Cemetery which we did not see headstones for when we visited. We may have missed it, it may have been destroyed or they may never have had one, as my research sources often use cemetery records as opposed to headstone transcriptions. I suggest that if you desire further information on any of the following, that you contact the Houston County Courthouse which has a historical society that resides in the courthouse building..
