Three Pinson cemeteries have been added to the Alabama Historic Register, it was announced last week.
Steven Baird of the Pinson Historical Society announced that the Red Hill Cemetery off Tapawingo Road, the Cole-Johnson Cemetery on Kaley Drive and the Chamblee Cemetery were added to the historic registry by the Alabama Historic Commission.
Most of these cemeteries date back to the 1800s, according to the Pinson Historical Society.
“Cemeteries provide a rare opportunity to study and honor our ancestors and our community,” reads a post on the society’s Facebook page. “These memorials to past generations can tell us about settlement patterns, family relationships and lifestyles.”
