Sandlin (or Booth) Cemetery

Contributed: March 2006

Surveyed by John Thompson

Note: This cemetery was originally known as the Booth Cemetery; however, years later, after the Sandlins were buried there, a sign was erected identifying it as Sandlin Cemetery. It is now known by both names.

Directions: Close to Beans Ferry on the Tombigbee River in southwestern part of county.

Also had 14 more graves marked but should have a lot more unmarked. The cemetery is a lot bigger than the number of graves that were marked.
