Bethlehem Baptist Church Cemetery, Dooly County

Bethlehem Baptist Church is a historic African-American congregation in rural Dooly County, located near Dooling. Mixed among newer commercial memorials are quite a few vernacular examples. Many have no names and even fewer display dates, but I believe they should be documented before they are completely lost to time. They are presented out of respect.
