Franklin Garrett?s Necrology is a genealogical resource for white men from the metropolitan Atlanta area, twenty-one years of age or older, who died between 1857 and 1931. Women listed in the necrology are mentioned in reference to their male counterparts. Garrett surveyed over 750 cemeteries or gravesites in greater Atlanta. Biographical information from each of the 163,000 white men included in the Necrology was derived from Atlanta City Directories, Atlanta and DeKalb newspaper obituaries, census records, estate records, wills, death records, and cemetery surveys. His research is compiled in abstracts on thirty-seven rolls of microfilm housed in the Kenan Research Center?s Goldstein Reading Room. This database is an index of those abstracts.

I had the honor of shaking Franklin Garrets hand one evening at a Cobb County Historical Society meeting. He passed away about a year later. This necrology was his survey of soldiers buried in the Atlanta area. Even cemeteries that were moved like Nancy Creek. You may find it useful.
