The Maloney Springs Cemetery survey is in Volume I of Cobb County Georgia Cemeteries, pp. 366 - 377 of the 1984 edition. I didn't find Joel Pinckney McPherson or Mary
Amanda Turley McPherson in the index for Vol. 1 or 2. I don't have Vol. 3 which is the Marietta National Cemetery.
There are a number of unmarked fieldstones in Maloney
Springs Cemetery, but I would expect they were pre-1880.

The Maloney Springs Church minutes are extant. The Smyrna Historical and Genealogy Society printed a number of transcription installments in the early 1990s.
Several branches of my family were members of the church: Barber, Clay, Daniell, and Pace.
