HALBERT FAMILY CEMETERY

 

This is possibly the oldest cemetery in existence in Lowndes County. Two of the stones are the oldest known stones in the county. The cemetery is located on private Halbert family land off of Halbert Road west of Highway 69 south of Columbus. There is evidence of more white burials and over fifty slave burials in the cemetery.
