MessageWe visited the Garner cemetery 09/01/2017. It was very special to see the graves and to visit some of the past history of our country. It is overgrown and does need some up keep. We came from West Point Georgia just to see them. Incredible that the cemetery is still there. I don't know if we are kin but glad that we had an afternoon to honor them.
