In Brookeville, go north 1.3 miles on Georgia Avenue (Highway 97), until you reach Gregg Road. Turn onto Gregg Road and go west/ northwest for 1.3 miles. (The road goes west then it turns north then west again then go slightly southwest.) The cemetery is south side of the road about 20 feet.
The first burial occurred in 1838 with the last burial in 1911. Colonel Gustavus Warfield Dorsey was a Civil War Veteran who fought alongside Jeb Stuart. He also commanded the last attack made by the Confederate Army during the Civil War.
A small family cemetery that is in terrible condition. The wrought iron gate and fence has partially fallen down. There is alot of overgrowth in the cemetery.
There is a barbed wire fence surrounding the cemetery as well. One stone was put against a tree. Another name for the cemetery is the Claggett-Owen-Dorsey Cemetery.
I visited and walked this cemetery on Aug 23, 2010.
