To reach this cemetery in Mobile, at I-65 and U.S. 98 (Moffett Road) intersection, take U.S. 98 west 1.1 miles to the traffic light at Wolf Ridge road. Turn right onto Wolf Ridge road and travel 1.3 miles. The cemetery is on the right.

Wolf Ridge Cemetery was established around 1865 and consists of approximately six acres. The cemetery has a fence on 3 sides. At the entrance located on the north side, there is a distinct concrete low wall (no higher than 18" H and 8-10" W) making the 4th side. The wall extends from the west front to the east back boundary, running at ground level and is visible approximately 80 feet from the back boundary. It separates Wolf Ridge Road Cemetery from Wolf Ridge Wilson Annex.

The oldest grave marked belongs to George Morris b. 9 Apr 1810 and d. 19 Jan 1868. Five wooden unreadable markers are said to belong to Civil War Veterans. In addition there are two more Civil War Veterans buried with markers. They are Edward P. McCrary and William S. Parker (1842-1942). Parker was the Last Confederate Veteran in Mobile County Co B 53 Ga. Inf. The marker was placed by the Raphael Semmes Camp 1206 SCU and Mobile Bay District U.D.C.

Many old stones are unmarked, broken or deteriorating but the cemetery is in relatively good condition. It is maintained by the families and donations. Burials are still taking place but should be coordinated through Mr. Phillips. There are a number of unmarked and non visible graves.

Robert Miller and I complied this complete transcription from tombstone inscriptions in summer of 2006, including names from the 18 Apr 1940 trustee cemetery lot list, and obituaries. The Trustees record lists 3 transient burials (One grave is marked). In addition Mr. Henry Sedgeway identified a few unmarked grave sites. Also Mr. Norman E. Morris Jr. provided a sectional drawing of the cemetery.

Information in parentheses and an asterisk (*) indicates no headstone and were identified by family members or others. Square brackets [ ] denote information from our genealogy research or obituaries. Parentheses ( ) indicates nicknames or maiden names.
