Pope-Beck Cemetery
AKA Bullard Cemetery

Camilla, Mitchell County, Georgia

Updates:

October 18, 2003: On October 18, 2003 Mr. Bullard reported that the name of the cemetery was incorrect. The name originally reported was Pope- Grey Cemetery. The correct name known to descendents of those interred there is Pope- Beck Cemetery. Mr. Bullard also reports that the cemetery is also known as Bullard Cemetery.

Thank you,
