|DUDLEYVILLE: Tallaposa County|
DAR marker to Abraham Mordechai, roadside, from Postal & Koppman "Jewish Tourist's Guide to U.S. Jewish Publ. Soc., Phila., PA 1954), p.8-9."
D.A.R. roadside marker was not there when last visited. The cemetery itself is not Jewish but Mordecai is buried in the far corner. These days, you have to know exactly where it is to find it -- you'd never just stumble on it. Note Dudleyville is no longer on most maps; it's part of Camp Hill near Dadeville, north of Auburn.

UPDATE: Grave of Abraham Mordecai (see Montgomery). Take E. Lafayette Street in Dadeville until it becomes Dudleyville Road. Follow it all the way to Dudleyville. Another route is County Road 49 from U.S. 280 just north of Dadeville for five miles, to County Road 44. Take a right, then follow 44 for 3.5 miles until it dead-ends onto Dudleyville Road. Take a left and go 7 miles. Just before the Chambers county line, there is an intersection with the old Dudleyville Grocery. Before reaching the intersection, there is a small cinder-block building on the left, which serves as the Dudleyville Voting House. A dirt road before the building leads to the cemetery. Mordecai¹s grave is by itself in the far corner, diagonal from the entrance. Source: Larry Brook, editor/publisher Deep South Jewish Voice, Birmingham [March 2005]
