Carroll is bordered by the Georgia counties of Haralson, Paulding Douglas, Fulton, Coweta and Heard, and the Alabama counties of Cleburne and Randolph.

Burials

Culpepper Cemetery

Whitesburg, Carroll County, GA. In the southeastern part of the county, approximately two miles west of Whitesburg. Map

Interred in this cemetery are descendants of Joel and Elizabeth Whittaker Culpepper of Carroll County, GA. Gertrude Walker Stone, of Newnan, GA, is the chief genealogist on this line, and she would probably know more about the cemetery if anyone would.
