About Saving Graves
Questions concerning Saving Graves Project

 

Official Code 36-72-1
 
(a) The care accorded the remains of deceased persons reflects respect and regard for human dignity as well as cultural, spiritual, and religious values. The General Assembly declares that human remains and burial objects are not property to be owned by the person or entity which owns the land or water where the human remains and burial objects are interred or discovered, but human remains and burial objects are a part of the finite, irreplaceable, and nonrenewable cultural heritage of the people of Georgia which should be protected.
 

Official Code 36-72-4 G
12/03/01
No known cemetery, burial ground, human remains, or burial object shall be knowingly disturbed by the owner or occupier of the land on which the cemetery or burial ground is located for the purposes of developing or changing the use of any part of such land unless a permit is first obtained from the governing authority of the municipal corporation or county wherein the cemetery or burial ground is located, which shall have authority to permit such activity except as provided in Code Section 36-72-14.

Brantley County Cemetery Information

          It is unknown by me if there are any current cemetery preservation projects going on at this time.  I do know that Brantley County residents are very active in recording, and maintaining cemeteries as best they can.
          There are several however, that are endangered, and in very bad repair.  Many have been vandalized by careless people who think it okay to dump household trash in them [items such as washers, dryers, couches, car parts, anything too big for a dumpster or illegal to dump].
          To me, this is the biggest concern, and should be addressed by the citizens of Brantley.  The cemetery lists and transcriptions were provided by Walter Kenneth Sylvester of Ware County, Georgia, for use on the GlynnGen.com website.
