http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bellefonte,_Alabama

Bellefonte is a ghost town in Jackson County, Alabama, United States,[1] near the site of the Bellefonte Nuclear Generating Station. It is located roughly two miles southeast of Hollywood, Alabama.

Bellefonte was settled in the early nineteenth century and incorporated in 1821, when it had nearly 200 residents. Its name was a subjective description consisting of the French words "belle", meaning "beautiful," and "fonte", meaning "fount." It was the Jackson County seat from 1821 to 1859. During the following decade, a post office, courthouse, and church were constructed. A post office was established in 1830. By 1844, the population had grown to 400. The town suffered severe damage during the Civil War. The post office was closed in 1859, and the entire town was abandoned by the 1920s. All that remains of Bellefonte today are the cemetery, the chimney of the local inn, and piles of scattered bricks.[2][3]

My friend in Hollywood, Jackson county Al ( as you well know is located next to our Marion county tn ) sent this to me and I thought perhaps some of you might be interested in helping out too. If you need more information let me now and I will send you the article in the newspaper.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
After we moved to Hollywood, Alabama we found out that the
original name was Bellefonte and lo and behold I knew that one of my 4th great-grandfathers had died and was buried in the Old Bellefonte Cemetery in Bellefonte, AL. We discovered the cemetery was near our home but you could not get into it because it was so over grown and of course there were snakes. Carl and I couldn't even find a way in when we went looking one day. WELL, in today's paper they had a write up and they have had the inmates working on the old cemetery for the last month and have even made steps so you can climb up the hill to get to the cemetery. There is to be a clean up day on April 2nd and they were asking for volunteers. I called the one girl who knows me and told her Carl and I will be there so please find something that I can do to help that isn't physical. She then had me call this other man and I gave him all my genealogy info and he is even going to see what he can find on him at the Heritage Center for me today. I explained my problem and he said don't worry we will find something for you to do. I am so excited that the Jackson County Historical group has taken this step.

Although they can not find a Bartlett Gentry on the list they have, there are many unmarked stones there. Who knows with God's help I might find a stone that was missed but just to get to go to the cemetery is exciting.
