Cemeteries in the Summerour Community near Cohutta Springs (east)

Summerour Chapel was once located near the area of Cohutta Springs (era not known, probably Civil War era and perhaps earlier). It is sometimes spelled "Summerhours," especially in old correspondence. It was located near the Old Summerour Methodist Church Cemetery and lies east of the railroad track on Summerour Church Road. Later, Summerour Methodist Church was built about 1905. The cemetery across from the location of that church (no longer a Methodist Church) is Summerour Methodist Cemetery. It is located west of the railroad track on Summerour Church Road, Crandall, Georgia. The Summerour Methodist Church burned a decade or so ago, and the church now located there is Amazing Grace Baptist Church, on Summerour Church Road. These are the cemeteries in that community, with links to the memorial pages at Find A Grave.

Old Summerour Methodist Church Cemetery

Summerour Methodist Cemetery
Surnames include Aly, Beavers, Dunn, Lackey, Gossage, Hansird, Henson, Jones, and many others.

Summerour Family Cemetery: I don't actually know the location, and don't know whether it is near the old Summerour community featured here. It says Chatsworth, but many areas over the county are designated by mailing route as "Chatsworth." (This may be the site at the corner of Cohutta Springs Road and U.S. Highway 411, where there is an old grave with an infant burial. I don't have the name of the child right now and cannot check this list for it.

Amazing Grace Baptist Church Cemetery
(Burials there are fairly recent.)
