Enterprise Church Cemetery
Ashford, Houston County, Alabama

Lat: 31 09' 04"N, Lon: 85 16' 43"W

This listing was contributed by Phillip Karns, Jun 28, 2005 [pjkarns@adelphia.net].  Total records = 107.

From the intersection of US Hwy 84 and County Road 33 in Ashford, Alabama, proceed south on CR 33 for 2.1 miles to Enterprise Church road. Turn right and proceed one mile west to the church and cemetery.

This cemetery is owned maintained by the Enterprise Baptist Church. It is clean and very well kept. Judging from the dates, it started in the 1960s, making it a relatively new cemetery.

If a marriage date is inscribed on a common headstone, it is placed by the husband's record Parentheses contain notes and/or personal knowledge of the surveyor. Many of the military had two stones. Information is combined onto one listing.

I visited this cemetery and did this complete survey on Jun 22, 2001. It includes all existing and legible tombstone inscriptions to that date.
