Coursey Cemetery is located at 219 Coursey Cemetery Rd., Clyo, Georgia

The small rural cemetery is located just south of the South Carolina line in Effingham County Georgia. It’s earliest graves are those of husband and wife, J. J. and Martha Pitts, but the eventual name which would stick with the cemetery is the “Coursey Cemetery” for the numerous Coursey graves. Mary Walton Pitts would marry Robert Coursey and the remaining interments would be related to this union. The latest burial was in 2001 when Marian Coursey Tuttle Haynes chose Courtney Cemetery as her last resting place.
