This little boy that was very cold as you can see portrayed a child that had drowned during a community picnic.
This woman was very good - she had three sons that fought in the Civil War. Matter of fact most of the graves are from people living during the War of 1812 and the Civil War. We also learned that the cousin of President Martin Van Buren (sp?) was from Clarkesville and buried in that very cemetery. Also buried here were a couple of congressmen, the founder of Clarkesville and Cleveland, Georgia, and the first victim of murder in Clarkesville. The murder occurred due to problems during the Gold Rush. Even though it was cold it was great seeing the members of our homeschool group and learning something about our local history.
