Clapp Cemetery Muscogee County, Columbus, GA
My name is Kemis Massey and I am working with a group of descendants of those buried in the Clapp Cemetery in Columbus, GA. I found a web site about the descendants of William Barnes, with your email addresses. (http://members.aol.com/thsone/surname/barfile5.txt) On this web site there were 2 family members that were buried in the Clapp Cemetery. How were you able to determine the location of their burials?
The land were the cemetery is located was purchased by Georgia Power in the 1920's. The cemetery is now a jungle. Currently we are trying to gather as much information on those buried there. Ultimately we would like to see the cemetery cleaned up. If you would be interested in sharing your info with some of the others, please let us hear from you. http://groups.yahoo.com/group/ClappCemetery/
I recently sent the following email to many of the email lists I belong to

Please keep in mind we don't know exactly who is buried there or where in the cemetery they are buried. THERE ARE NO RECORDS. Please do not ask me if your family members are there, I don't know. I only have some information on the people listed above and it is limited.
Thanks for any support that you can give us this cemetery."
Happy family hunting,
