Sardis Cemetery
Sardis, Bullock County, Alabama

Lat: 32° 05' 18"N, Lon: 85° 45' 42"W
T13N R23E Sec 20

Contributed by John H. Adams, Jul 19, 2008, last edited Aug 02, 2008 [johms@bellsouth.net]. Total records = 353.

To reach cemetery from Union Springs, Alabama, starting at US Hwy 82 on the west side of town, turn south onto Sardis Road, Hwy 223 and continue for 4.7 miles. Turn left or east onto County Road 22 in the community of Sardis. The cemetery will be on the east of the church on the south side of Hwy 22.

This cemetery is owned by the Sardis Baptist Church and is kept in pretty good condition by neighbor volunteers and some descendants of those interred there. The church has been inactive for many years, although there is a committee which attempts to maintain the building.

The land for the church and cemetery was deeded to the Sardis Church Committee from John M. & Amy Jane Youngblood Dozier on Jun 12, 1841. The first burial is believed to be that of Isabella Crawley, who died Oct 12, 1841.

Information in parentheses was not on the headstone, and dates were calculated. The dates are in Month/Day/Year format.

Headstones located in the forested area, between the maintained cemetery and the church building, served as a section for the Black community use until the early 20th century. These are labeled Black Sec.

Nancy M. Adams and I visited and read this cemetery in Mar of 2001 and combined this survey with a 1893 plat.
