Old Warren Cemetery Restoration

In the spring of 1987, with the help of Thomas & Janet Conners, Billy & Shirley Hampton began the tedious process of clearing the completely overgrown Old Warren Cemetery. This historical site had been unceremoniously used as a neighborhood dumping ground for some thirty years. The two couples worked every weekend cutting and stacking piles of brush, limbs, and trees until their task was completed in the fall of that year. The only outside assistance these workers received was from the Warren Fire Department which had agreed to burn the debris as it was cleared from the land.

Following an appeal for funds to establish perpetual care, small amounts of money were sent to Shirley by descendants of those who were buried in the cemetery. The money has been placed in a local bank and it is Shirley's hope to receive enough for maintenance of the old cemetery. In the meantime, Shirley and Billy continue to mow the area once a month.

Dates on the markers in the cemetery range from 1881 to 1969, although there may be earlier markers that have not yet been located. Frazer's Funeral Home has documentation on file regarding graves that are unmarked. Shirley has received information from descendants concerning dates of death and location of family members graves.

The following list of persons known to be buried in the Old Warren Cemetery was compiled from the various sources that have been noted.

The Bradley County Genealogical Society wishes to give special recignition to the Hamptons for their splendid efforts in restoring and maintaining the Old Warren Cemetery.
