Old Salem Cemetery was cleaned up by Grantham descendants and others. Each year there is a Grantham reunion held at New Hope Baptist Church in the Bertha Community of Dale County. A collection is taken up each year to help maintain the cemetery. There were many buried there without tombstones or at least tombstones that survived. Some were marked with a rock. Many more were uncovered when the cemetery was cleaned up. I have pictures of some of the tombstones if anyone is interested.

Any chance, there are records at the Church of folks who were buried there? We feel our ancestor, WIlliam L Sanders, who prob died between 1866-1870 was buried at the Old Salem Cemetery but w/o benefit of headstone. Just a rumor. Have been to the site myself in 2000 and even tried calling the phone number listed on the sign but after leaving a voicemail no one ever contacted me. The number I had was 795-6272. He lived in the Clopton area. Appreciate any information. CS
