There are 2 Gunn cemetery plots in Cuthbert, Georgia which is in Randolph County. I do not know the names of the cemetery these Gunn sites are in, and did not see where the name of the cemetery would be displayed (though I'm sure it's there somewhere).
I've taken photos of all the monuments and headstones in each of the 2 sites, and I've included a short description of each photo below. It was very cold the day I took the photos, and should have spent more time documenting the photos, because in some of the photos you cannot read the inscriptions clearly. Some inscriptions are readable in person, but some are not due to them being extremely weathered and worn.

Here is what each photo contains:
A nice photo of the first of two Gunn cemetery sites.
This site contains a beautiful and very large four sided monument
as well as a smaller four sided cross monument. The site is enclosed
with a short, ornate wrought iron fence. Inside this fenced site
are several beautiful graves, and are documented with photos and

The inscription is unreadable in this photo.

GUNN CEMETERY SITE LOCATION TWO
The next group of photos was taken of the second of the two Gunn cemetery sites in the cemetery.
The headstones in this cemetery are older and very weathered. It is difficult to read many of
the headstone inscriptions in the photos.
This photo shows one side of an older Gunn monument, for W. C. Gunn

This photo is of a headstone inscription, and all the words are not readable in this photo, unfortunately, because I remember the inscription is very touching.
I do not remember the opposite side of this headstone, though more than likely it is the back of the infant son Callway headstone.
