Hill Family Burial Site
This cemetery is best reached from the parking lot of the Jammer, off County Highway #111(London Bridge Road), just above the Five Point Intersection on Route #29A.  The burials are to the Northwest side of the Jammer (building) and to its rear in a densely grown over section of brush and tigerlillies. The stones have been knocked over and covered with debris; only one stone was evident in our search (July 1978).
  There were believed to have been at least three burials here of the Hill family.  I recall stones marking tow graves next to an apple tree in back and to the west of the old Hill store then in my recollection when Jacob Unger lived there.
  Recorded this day, July 26, 1978, by the C. E. T. A. Cemetery Recording Project of Fulton County.
