Rome Primitive Baptist Church Cemetery
Twyman Smith Rd, Dixie Union, Ware County, Georgia


Rome Primitive Baptist Church and Cemetery do not seem to be on any map anywhere I could find. Even USGS hasn't mapped it on their website. I found these burials by calling Music Funeral Home in Waycross (they perform the majority of the burials at this location).

The Church is one room white building located a few feet off the newly four laned US Hwy 1 North of Waycross on Twyman Smith Road (dirt road). It is almost directly across from Chandler's convenience store (painted Red, White & Blue and looks like an old house). It's easy to miss unless driving very slowly through the Dixie Union community.

There are photos of all tombstones as of 11 Oct 2007 found at FindAGrave.Com: http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=cr&CRid=2212166 . If I was able to locate their obituary, I have put "obit" next to their name below. Go to the FindAGrave link to view the information.

**UNMARKED GRAVE ASSUMPTION**
There is an unmarked grave, I think, next to "Junior SWEAT" above. **If** John SWEAT is buried here and **if** I have the corrrect John SWEAT, this may be his data below. Please do not take this as gospel. This is not proven and I'm still researching. :o)
