This cemetery was originally part of Ebenezer Methodist Church. The church was moved to Cartersville in 1848 and is now the "Sam Jones Memorial Methodist Church"
Oak Hill cemetery is now owned by the City of Cartersville and is located less than 5 minutes from the courthouse, at 319 North Erwin Street, Cartersville, GA 30210. The front gate to the cemetery is on Erwin Street, the back gate is on Cassville Road.
Many of the graves listed on the Oak Hill Management list no longer have markers, and there are quite a few damaged or worn markers which were difficult or impossible to read.
According to Oak Hill Management, there are graves without tombstones that are not included on their list. If you know of someone that is buried in Oak Hill that is not included in this transcription, please email the information to
. The burial list at the time we finished in July 2004 contains 11,511 graves.
Thank you to Oak Hill personnel Johnny Womack and Garry Cochran, whose help was invaluable.
