The American Bar: A Biographical Directory of Contemporary Lawyers, 1934 ed.

This book does not list every lawyer in a particular area. It is "...a directory of contemporary lawyers actively practicing their profession, who by reason of their high standing and repute at the bar are particularly worthy of mention."

There are four firms from Macon listed, and I can confirm two individuals listed are buried in Rose Hill:
