Penile Baptist Church Cemetery
       Aka Sheppard Cemetery

shown as unknown 35 on maps


In memory of our ancestors in Barbour County, they may never have anyone to visit or clean their graves, a single rose to say that there are some that still remember and that they are not  long ago forgotten

 #35....Old cemetery on land owned by Jesse Helms near Blue Springs, Alabama-no marked graves-known as
Sheppard Cemetery.

Hello, my name is Carolyn Sheppard-Hamilton. This cemetery (#35) is where a lot of my family is
buried, including my paternal grandmother, grandfather and his parents, my ggrandmother and ggrandfather. It
was at one time called Penile Baptist Church Cemetery, and I know from newspaper articled that when my
grandmother died in 1941 her service was held at that church. I am very pleased to share this information with you. Here is a list of their information.  It is possible that others are buried here also, I will update as I learn new information.
