This cemetery was always known as the Laing/Lang Cemetery. Margaretta Lang married Bartlett Hinson, and her ancestors are buried here. Since at least the 1950s, there have not been any grave markers other than those of Bartlett Hinson and his wife Margaretta. There are many more buried here; however. The chain link fence was of course put here in the 1900s; it wasn't original to the cemetery. There's no way to know how large the cemetery was. Many of the Laings in the Calvary and Cairo, Georgia, area are relatives of these Laings.
Since there are only Hinson stones left, I have begun calling it the The Bartlett Hinson Cemetery. It is in a pasture on the left side of and about 2/10 mile down Bell Road from Hwy. 157. It is directly across from the home of Lawrence Hinson, a grandson. It is maintained by the Hinson family.
Directions: north on Hwy. 157, Concord-Bainbridge Road, about 2 miles north of the crossroads of Fairbanks Ferry Road and Concord-Bainbridge Road in the community of Concord, Florida. It is about 1.5 miles south of the George-Florida state line. In the photos below, you are looking west at the Concord-Bainbridge Road. The Barber Cemetery is at the treeline on the right.
