Marlin Cemetery is a small, well-maintained cemetery off Expressway Church Road. David Donahue recorded this cemetery March 4, 2004 based upon the 1976 record of the cemetery. This web page with 2004 information has been created by modifying Joy Beth Bartholomew Campbell's record of the cemetery. She recorded Marlin Cemetery July 19, 1994 and updated it April 17, 1998. This record is referred to as Campbell in notes below. Betsy Patterson, Derrick Lewis, Sammie Lewis recorded Marlin Cemetery in 1976.
