Salem Cemetery
Geraldine, DeKalb County, Alabama

Lat: 34 21' 27"N, Lon: 86 01' 02"W
T8S R6E Sec 9

Contributed by Johnny L. Williams, May 23, 2006 [johnnylwilliams@yahoo.com]. Total records = 221.

From Geraldine drive NW on Salem Road for about one mile. Cemetery is on the north side of the road, beside the church.

This cemetery is owned and maintained by the Salem United Methodist Church. It has the following burials as well as many unmarked graves. The first burial was that of James Rucks in 1874, and it is still in use today.

This cemetery was surveyed under the direction of Ralph H. and Louise Allred on Jun 11, 1966. I have transcribed it for the internet with their permisson.
