Originally surveyed by Wayne Carpenter in September 2001. Photographed and survey updated on November 27, 2010,
by Donna Warlick and Angela Cassidy.
Directions: From Quincy, go west on State Road 12, veering left at Douglas City heading toward Greensboro. Continue
through Greensboro and follow S.R. 12 about 4.5 miles, turn right on Pine Grove Church Road. Turn left on Boykin Road,
a wide clay road. Continue about a mile and over a hill, turn right on Whittle Road. Go one-half mile and turn left at a blue
sign saying "NW J C Whittle Cemetery Rd". From here it is a two-rut road that ends in a wide open space a little over an
acre, and the cemetery is straight ahead. It is surrounded by fence posts and barbed wire. Although it says "No Trespassing",
the family just put that sign up to keep out riff raff and people in trucks doing donuts. If you have a legitimate reason for being
at this cemetery, there will be no problem with the family. We were met on site by Miss Ruby, daughter of J. C. Whittle, who
graciously escorted us around and told us about relationships of the people buried there.
Miss Ruby told us that there used to be a Methodist Church at the end of the road and a school that
went to the 6th grade. She explained that this cemetery is the family of J. C. Whittle. His mother was
a Boykin, and that is the source of the Boykin family here.
Please send me photos and obituaries of people buried here, and I will include them. Angela Cassidy
If the surname is in burgundy font, that is a photo of the tombstone. If the given name is also in color, it is a
second photo, either a closeup shot of text or a military plaque.
The beginning of Whittle Road, where you turn from Boykin.
Wide, sandy dirt road, up and down hills. Some of the highest elevations in the county are in this area.
