Old Snow Hill Church Cemetery

Highway 215
Wilcox County, Georgia

This cemetery is located a good distance off the highway. It is not far
out of the Pitts city limits. A local gentleman said beside this cemetery
was where the old Snow Hill Church stood.

The following survey is complete, according to what is able to be seen
today (July 2002). However, I believe there were many more burials than
what is listed below.
