SACRED GROUND IN SHARON

The first Catholic congregation of Georiga moved to Sharon from Locust Grove around 1875 to be closer to the railroad. The church was relocated from Locust Grove, and a new cemetery was established.

 

Purification Cemetery is an active Catholic cemetery and many of Taliaferro County’s founding families have plots here.
