CEMETERY, (north bank of Hwy. 72 W.), LIMESTONE COUNTY, ALABAMA
This map shows the the Donaldson Cemetery on the bank of Highway 72 West north side next to a farmers land bank. It has been cleared recently but still remains in danger of caving off into the ditch of the roadbed. If something is not done soon the neighbors will begin to see old caskets or bones protruding from the bank.
From Railroad bed Road on Highway 72 going west go 1/2 mile west and look right at a tree between a retail (Rug) business and a bank (Farmers Land) next to the road. One can see the one oval top upright stone from the highway and the box tomb slabs almost on the ground.
This Google Map shows a winter view of the Hackberry Tree that marks the place where the cemetery is located. Below the tree on the bank of the road is this small family cemetery. It is shown indicated with a yellow pointer. Notice the bare red clay eroding away. That will eventually pose a threat to the existence of this cemetery unless steps are taken to get vegetation to grow there.
LOCATION: NE quarter of SW quarter, Sect. 25, T3S, R3W on the north side of Hwy. 72 West.
