Jonesboro City Cemetery

Jonesboro, Clayton County, Georgia
George T. Crawford, 1855-1886

Still, an active cemetery, the Jonesboro City Cemetery highlights a combination of Victorian monuments, handmade markers, and manufactured ones. It also illustrates that it was a segregated cemetery. The Black section sits at the back of the cemetery, and it has several markers showing men and women who were born into slavery but lived past the end of the Civil War.

“Resting till the resurrection.”
Clarence Stagger, 1979-2003
Martha Lee, 1841-1904
