Richland’s beautiful cemetery is the final resting place for many Georgia pioneers, people who settled the state’s interior when it was still a wilderness. It is truly a landmark in and of itself.
Part of the cemetery is located in the churchyard with another section across the highway.
This urn-style headstone is a memorial to Amanda Beckcom, wife of S. L. Richardson.
