Hickory Springs

A very beautiful evening at the Hickory Springs Primitive Baptist Church Cemetery near Tifton, Georgia. June 2019.

This is the headstone of the Fletchers: George and Arjane. I visited this cemetery recently and thought the sky with scattered showers in the region was particularly striking.

A maternal great grandfather isn’t far away and my great grandmother, Mary FLETCHER Paulk Gibbs, married later in life to one of the church’s preachers, is also nearby. I believe that George Fletcher is her brother due to a photo in my grandmother’s album.

This cemetery is well cared for. It is an excellent help in visualizing community links, as with most church cemeteries.
