Originally surveyed October 29, 1999, by Wayne N. Carpenter. Surveyed and photographed by Donna Warlick on
November 23, 2010.
The Colson Cemetery is located on Hardaway Road (north side) in a string of 3 cemeteries, Colson being the
farthest west (toward Chattahoochee), Bonnie Hill in the center, and McAlpin the farthest east. They are almost at
the intersection of Hardaway Road and Lincoln Rd. There's no contact information for Colson Cemetery, but it
appears to be a family cemetery and still has new burials.
From Chattahoochee: Travel south on Bonnie Hill Road (Hwy 269). Go 4.1 miles to Hardaway Road (Hwy 268).
Turn left and go .7 mile. Cemetery is on the left side with the name on brick pillars (the first cemetery in a row of 3).
From Quincy: Take U.S. Hwy 90 west to Gretna, and turn left on Hardaway Road (Hwy 268). Go 10 or 12 miles
through nothing but farm land, and see the cemetery on the right, just before Lincoln Road comes in from the right.
It is the third on the right just before the church.
As in every cemetery index, if the surname is in burgundy font, that is one photo of the tombstone. If the
given name is also in color, that is a second photo of the tombstone as a closeup or of a military plaque.
Be sure to click on both.
