Dunaway Family Cemetery is located on the Coosa River Side
of Dunaway Mountain, on Lister Ferry Road.

From the intersection of Alabama Hwy. 77 and U S 411, go
West past the Rainbow City Hall, and take the first left on
to Lister Ferry Road, go 3.4 miles, and the Cemetery is on
the right side of the road, facing the Coosa River.


Dunaway Family Cemetery History.
The Dunaway family came into this area by 1832.
One of the ladies was a charter member of Old Harmony
Baptist Church.
The Dunaway family owned a large farm on Coosa River,
consisting of several hundred acres of land. The farm laid
just west of the Lister Ferry.
The mountain that runs parallel to Rainbow Drive is named
for the Dunaway family.
Several years ago I (Doyal Hill), owned a lot on the river
that was the former site of the old Dunaway home. I bought
the lot from one of my cousins, that owned the farm before
the water had covered the bottom land. He could barely
remember the old house. He said that he though the house was
torn down about 1903 or 1904.
Several members of the family are buried in Old Harmony
