NAME: Green Pond
COUNTY: Polk
ROADS: 2WD
GRID: 3
CLIMATE: Fine, It's Florida
BEST TIME TO VISIT: Anytime COMMENTS: Many folks out in the country however, the
town of green pond is gone. Take hwy 33 in northern polk county and just north of polk city turn on east green pond road. When you get to the cemetary you're there. REMAINS: 1879 green pond cemetary, various "cracker homes" out in the country on green pond road.

Green Pond was a community in 1879 with the Green Pond Baptist church being founded there in 1890. The old church is gone plus all the buildings. Families include the Judys, Meeks, Raulersons,and Hancock. The cemetary, in the center, has quite a few old graves. Many unmarked. The oldest I found is Hancock, War of 1812, D:1856.

This information is taken from a listing compiled by Venetia Byrd Dees, a devoted genealogist…Venetia is the great-granddaughter of John Baggs Raulerson…She is also related to the Sloan’s…James Johnson shared a copy with Marlinda Passmore…Marlinda summarized the information by Surname & shared a copy of her work with me, which I have retyped for transmittal as follows…Gail Harris, 01 February 2003…

Note: all information should be verified/confirmed before using…due to typo errors, etc…this should not be used as a “source document” – but, rather as a clue/lead to additional data on your family members…and we all have learned that dates on head stones are not always accurate…

Emily M. Dease is my great-grandmother, married to William Dease.
She is not buried in the Green Pond Cemetery, she is located in the Mt. Olive Cemetery in the same town as Green Pond (Polk City). I have been to the historical library in Bartow to research her location. The books they have there state she, along w/ many others, are buried @ Green Pond. HOWEVER, I have been there myself & found she & others are not @ Green Pond. She is located a few miles away @ the Mt. Olive Cemetery, which the historical library has no record of this cemetery existing. It is located behind the Mt. Olive Baptist Church, Polk City, FLA. Any questions feel free to e-mail. Thanks.
