May, 2001 The Holloway Cemetery is being moved. 
The following are pictures taken by Bob Blackmer & Rose Birdwell in mid May, 2001. They are probably the last pictures that will be taken of this cemetery so they are special.
As of May 25, the fence surrounding the cemetery has been removed.  A real estate developer bought the land where Holloway Cemetery sits.  He is moving the graves to Mapleview Cemetery in Smyrna.  He has been in contact with the family.   As of May 27, two grave stones have been torn down.
