Other Information

An enclosed section appears to be older, marked by an old iron fence. Some graves have been recently marked with wood crosses; debris and garbage looks piled in areas as though someone tried to clean it up in past years but never finished. Handwritten sign marks it as a private, family cemetery. Kemp family in Forsyth dates back into the early and mid 19th century
