Notes: A correction has been made for the name of  the Cemetery of James  and  Virginia Jane (Montgomery) Appleby

Commonly thought of as the Appleby Cemetery, mostly, by Applebys,  the cemetery is, actually, the Niblack Family Cemetery.

Paulette Moon has a website for Georgia Cemeteries and she, kindly, sent the correction and a picture of the tombstone for 

James & V. Jane Appleby.  Also, included a  picture of the tombstone for Emily (Montgomery) Niblack,  Jane's sister.

Ms. Moon has no connection to the Appleby Family, but has a new Cemetery website for Georgia researchers.
