BUTLER CO, AL SELLERS CEMETERY

SELLERS CEMETERY

                          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.

Sellers Cemetery is located south of Georgiana.  There are approximately 40
graves on the site, with the last internment in 1954.  This is from the
Historical Atlas of Alabama.
