Hart Family Cemetery-Hartsfield-Jackson Airport, Georgia

Located amongst the roads and runways of Hartsfield-Jackson International airport are two cemeteries. One of those cemeteries is the Hart Family Cemetery which was started in 1860. It contains several generations of the Ellender (1822-1860) and John (1816-1898) Hart family. The land has been owned by the Hart family and their descendants since the 1840s.

A 1995 assessment of the survey counted eighty-three graves, with most only being marked by fieldstones. The last burial occurred in the 1940s. The cemetery is still publicly accessible via Sullivan Road.
