Greenhill Cemetery
Guardian: Alvin "Rex"McGee

This is a very large, public cemetery located in rural Northern Titus County adjacent to the historic Green Hill Church. It is fenced and kept in very good condition. An endowment fund of approximately $38,000 was donated by Tess Hood Maley, daughter of Will Hood. In accordance with her will, it is required that $100 worth of flowers be placed on the family lot in the cemetery each year. A controversial tradition states that Moses Rose, the only man who refused to stay at the Alamo during the Texas Revolution is buried in this cemetery. This fact, however, is disputed by some historians. The first land was given by a Rev. E. H Green. Decoration day is held annually on the Saturday before the first Sunday in May. The cemetery has been awarded a State Historical Plaque from the State Historical Survey. It states: The Rev. Edward Hollister Green Born Madison County Ala.
