Directions:  Located South side of Hwy 53 E. at Sonoraville, Gordon County, Georgia, across from the old Sonoraville School. From I75, take the Calhoun Hwy 53 exit. Go East on Hwy 53 a little less than seven miles. There will be a new school complex on the left (North). East of the new school is the old Sonoraville School. The cemetery is across the street from the old school. West of the cemetery is the Sonoraville Lodge No. 221 F&AM and a Gordon County Fire Department.
 
The earliest grave is that of James H.F.GAINES, who died February 1,1894. The cemetery is well maintained. There were only one or two tombstones that were not readable. The cemetery is still active, with several recent graves. There are approx 300 gravesites laid out in thirteen parallel rows. The survey did not include graves (old and new) that did not have markers.
