Butler Cemetery, Concord, Florida

This cemetery was photographed by Angela Boynton Cassidy in August 2007. The index was compiled by
Angela Cassidy and notes in parentheses are from her personal knowledge and research.

Directions: From U. S. Hwy. 27 in Havana, go north and turn right on 5th Ave. (S.R. 12). After the City Limits, S.R. 12
is called Fairbanks Ferry Road. Continue on it about 4 miles and pass the Concord crossroads (intersection with Concord
Road) . Proceed east on Fairbanks Ferry Road about 3-4 miles and turn left on Cairo-Concord Road. The Butler
Cemetery is several miles north on the left side just before the Georgia State Line. It is slightly set back from the road,
but the stones are very white, and the cemetery is very bright and open, so it is easy to see.

There are a number of obelisks in this cemetery, where one photo is a full view, and another is a closeup view of the
text. If there is only one photo, only the surname will be in color in the table below, but if there is a second photo, the given
name will also be in color.
