Franklin
                      (south of Gorgas on Franklin Bend Road - Goodsprings Road)
                       According to Elaine Barnwell, "
The Franklin Cemetery was located adjacent to my Grandfather's
                      (John Wesley Fondren) farm.
                       The land is owned by Alabama Power Company and is leased by Drummond Coal Company.
                       In the 1990's (I'm not sure exactly when) all the bodies were exhumed and moved to other cemeteries
                       because Drummond wanted to add a portal to their coal mine and they built a road through the cemetery."
