Godwin Cemetery
Hwy. 111
Grady Co, GA
Submitted by Kimberly Volk & Chuck Gandy, February 6, 2000

Located off Hwy. 84; Approximately 3 miles south of Cairo on Hwy. 111. The sign states that this cemetery was established in 1874. Although this cemetery is a small family cemetery, someone is taking very good care of it. There were a few unmarked graves, and some of the stones were very hard to decipher. Please feel free to send any corrections.
