Hillabee Campground Methodist Church Cemetery

Hillabee Campground Methodist Church Cemetery is located approximately 1.5 miles south of County Road 94 on County Road 33 in Tallapoosa County, Alabama.

In September 2001, Jean Clements, a volunteer with Random Acts of Genealogical Kindness, made the photos of the Hillabee Blues Confederate memorial marker in the Hackneyville Cemetery, near the location where the men enlisted. She also took the photos of the gravestones of James W. Holdridge and Robert Holdridge in the Hillabee Cemetery and mailed them to me. I was finally able to visit Tallapoosa County in May 2008 and take more photos.

The History of Hillabee Campground Church has been made available online at the Hillabee Campground Church website.
