Carlos Cemetery; Bibb County, Georgia

I recently visited and surveyed Carlos Cemetery on Taylor Road in Bibb County, Georgia. Following the link above, you'll find I've uploaded gravestone transcriptions and photos, as well as linked to obituaries and news articles about some of those interred there.
Enjoy!

The hand of the Lord came upon me and brought me out in the Spirit of the Lord, and set me down in the midst of the valley; and it was full of bones. Then He caused me to pass by them all around, and behold, there were very many in the open valley; and indeed they were very dry. And He said to me, "Son of man, can these bones live?"

So I answered, "O Lord God, You know."

Again He said to me, "Prophesy to these bones, and say to them, 'O dry bones, hear the word of the Lord!' Thus says the Lord God to these bones: 'Surely I will cause breath to enter into you, and you shall live...'" (Ezekiel 37:1-5, NKJV)
