Gillis Cemetery
Treutlen County, Georgia

Lat:34 21' 40"N, Lon: 84 02' 58"W

Contributed by Tracy H. Smith, Jan 05, 2003 [keyacct@bellsouth.net].
Total records = 106.

From Soperton, GA, take 221 toward Swainsboro. Left on 86. Take 2nd right (dirt road). Take 2nd right, again (another dirt road). Cemetary is immediately on right.

Brick hip-wall with short ironwork gates, surrounding a well-kept, small cemetary. Many large marble headstones. Family plots separated by stone pavers except for back (older) section.

This is a complete listing of all existing tombstones, which I read when I walked the cemetery on Dec 28, 2002.

Misc:

??, Small stone, about 18' high, too crumbled to read, hidden by small bush.

** Additional Markings for Marvin Marion Gillis (2/3/1895-10/9/1918): Headstone also said: "Lost in Battle / Meuse Argonne / 11 M.G. Bn" Slab said: "Aisne-Marne / St. Mihiel / Meuse-Argonne / Defensive Sector", then showed picture of an Angel with Sword & underneath that, picture of a type of gun with a base to sit on ground (machine gun?). Aisne-Marne, St. Mihiel, & Meuse-Argonne were all battles in France in WWI. I believe the gun is a machine gun commonly used in WWI, possibly a Browning). (Also, Marvin was a son of Mary J Barwick & Angus A Gillis).
