Greenwood Cemetery was the site of the First Methodist Church of Cuthbert. "Shady Grove," a building made of logs and a campground combination, served as the church from 1843 to 1851. The burying grounds remain today with many tombstones and old graves. Well-known people who are buried here are Dr. A.L. Hamilton, president of Andrew College during the Civil War, and his wife, Eudora, who was the only female president of Andrew College; Fletcher Hamilton Henderson, Sr., Educator, his wife, Ozie Chapman Henderson, and their son, Fletcher Jr., renown jazz composer and musician. Also, the graves of 24 Confederate soldiers that died at Hood Hospital located at Andrew College are buried here. The statue of the Confederate soldier with the broken hand was relocated to stand guard after it was blown off of the monument on the square by the cyclone of 1909. There are many other historic cemeteries in Randolph County, as well as Cuthbert and Shelllman.
