High Log Cemetery

We were unable to find High Log Cemetery, it should be located in the High Log community of Bullock Co. Alabama. We asked several of the older residents of the community about this cemetery and no one knew of it. This cemetery may have been destroyed or is lost. If anyone can supply directions or GPS coordinates for High Log Cemetery please contact me at kat@hallofmaat.com

This is an old survey of High Log Cemetery that was given to me many years ago. Please remember that I can not verify this information at this time. All notes and comments shown were on the survey and are not made by me. I am reproducing this survey *exactly* as it was typed on the original.

Update Nov 1st, 2006 - I've been contacted by someone who knows where this cemetery is located, they said it was badly damaged by trees falling on headstones during hurricane Opal, I hope to making a trip to photograph and verify what I can of this survey soon
