    This thread is disheartening!
    Please stay completely away from my family's cemetery in Gordo, Alabama!
    Don't go in or around it.
    It is ALL private property.
    I've personally put metallic mementos around that area including war medals.
    Please don't desecrate the sanctity.

    I have the good fortune of having a family church with a cemetery, where I was given full permission to detect. I got some really interesting things there, including a beautiful 1864 Nova Scotia penny. You should understand that in an old unmaintained cemetery there are probably five to ten times as many graves as there are markers, depending on the age of the cemetery and if the owners could afford stone monuments. However, people were almost universally planted pretty deep, deep enough that you probably won't disturb them even if you are detecting right above the grave. But, if you are committed to staying outside the cemetery, 50' should be more than enough.
