RUTH COFER CEMETERY - TYNER AREA

Ruth Cofer Cemetery is the graveyard for indigents in Hamilton County. It was named "Ruth Cofer Cemetery" by resolution of county council 10/2/1974. It was originally established by order of Judge Will Cummings 7/1/1933. The cemetery is located on Jenkins Rd between Old Lee Hwy/Bonny Oaks Drive and Standifer Gap Rd. US Express corporate headquarters is on one side and an apartment complex is on the other. A paved road leads up a hill to the cemetery. There are times when the cemetery is well maintained and times when it needs attention. This survey is incomplete, performed in 1999 by Jim Holcomb (JHOLC19593@aol.com).
