MASON BAPTIST CEMETERY
DeKalb County, Georgia

Transcribed by Mary West & Carol Purdy


This cemetery is behind the Mt Moriah Baptist Church on Mt Mariah (sic) Dr off N. Druid Hills. If you are facing the church, there is a cemetery to the left. That’s the Mt Moriah Cemetery. To the right and rear is a road with a gate across it. Down that road and to the left are two cemeteries. One is the I.O.B. Lodge Cemetery and to the far left is the Mason Baptist Cemetery. The Deacon of the Mt Moriah Church states that Mason is a now defunct church (about 20 years ago) but I have so far been unable to find any information on the church itself.

The transcription begns at the row closest to the church and goes left to right. Some stones are partially buried and not completely readable. Names in quotations are the names of the funeral homes which handled the burial such as “Haugabrooks” or “Cox”.
