Surveyed by Woodford Sherrill and Jack Ingram

Hello, Myrtle
Just a note with some new information concerning Terry Bridge Cemetery in Richmond County. The cemetery 
was "re-discovered" on 5/3/2010 by Platt Terry, Jr. and Ken Bagley.  

The cemetery is completely overgrown with dense foliage, thickets, and fallen trees and limbs, but the 
headstones are in remarkably good condition once the soil and overgrowth are pushed away.  They are all 
easily readable, and the information on the Richmond Co. website surveyed by Mr. Sherrill and Ingram appears 
to be correct.

There is no road or path to the site, and is only accessible through dense woods and brush.  It is located 
approximately 200 or 300 yards from Terry Bridge Road.  The address would be about 130 Terry Bridge Rd., and 
for those who use Google Earth or a GPS, the map coordinates would be 34.58.19 N and 79.44.05W.
Several of my wife's Terry relatives, all lifelong residents of the Roberdel area, were all completely unaware 
of a cemetery on Terry Bridge Rd.  Please feel free to use the location information to update the website for 
anyone who might wish to make their way to this cemetery. And Thank You for all of your efforts to help us amateur 
family historians. Ken Bagley May 3, 2010
