OLD ACTON CEMETERY , SHELBY COUNTY, AL.
Part of my history hobby is visiting old area cemeteries and taking a newcensus as well as making pictures. I recently visited the Old Acton Cemetery located generally between Caldwell Mill Road and Alabama #119 in the Cahaba Valley area of Shelby County, Alabama. This cemetery holds the remains of some of the areas oldest settlers but is in a sad state of repair. The fence is broken down in several areas, grave stones are broken, a number of graves have sunken, honeysuckle and other weeds are starting to grow.
I have no family connections to this cemetery that I have found but am taking this method of informing those with family interest of the immediate need for maintainance in the hope that someone will respond before it gets worse. It would not be a difficult job at this time.
I have a new census that I will post if anyone is interested.
