Little Utah Cemetery, Axson, Atkinson, Georgia, USA

Notes: Little Utah Cemetery Monument:

In the spring of 1899 the first Mormon missionaries came to this community and began to hold meetings.

The first members were baptized on 9 January 1900 by Nephi USC Jensen of Salt Lake City, UT. They were Irvin and Laura Spivey, Calvin W. and Sarahan Williams, Sara A. Williams, Morning Parker Davis, mother of Sarahan Williams.

On June 10, 1905, Calvin Washington Williams who owned a 600 acre farm surrounding this spot, donated and deeded these two acres of land to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints to be used for building a church and cemetery.

A small church made of rough lumber was built on this site in 1905 and was used for church and school until 1917. The building was then purchased and moved across the road to the south, where it was used as a school and tenant house.

The new church depicted above was built in 1918. The building committee consisted of Jesse Green Williams, J.G. White and William M. Bennett.

The following families were contributors to the building fund:
Ivey Davis, J.B. Bennett, M.D. Davis, T.H. Matthews, Ira Bennett, Charlie Tillman, Fisher Gaskins, C.R. White, Hardy Williams, A.F. Wilson, J.G. White, Dan White, Roan Mizell, W.J. White, W.C. Petty, Jim Higgs, Colman Wall, Y.O. Matthews, Isham Mizell, W.W. Stewart, E.H. Brown, C.W. Williams, Corey Wall, Clyde Bennett, Dinah Shadd, Jode Adams, Son Adams, Gord White, F.G. Davis, Harvey Davis, Jim Davis, Willis Davis, C.H. Davis, Jim Mizell, John Fussell, J.G. Williams, O.B. White, P.P. White, W.M. Bennett, Ellias Bennett, W. M. Davis, J.H. Covender, Son Mizell
