Contributed by Juanita Shreves, Feb 13, 2002 [jmshr999@aol.com] Total records = 70.

Coming off the 526 bypass, take the exit for Ashley River Rd north, Turn right at the first stop light and continue to next stop light, Turn right again and the cemetery is down only half block on right setting back from the road, There is a driveway with a sign for the church entrance.

This is an older cemetery and most of the graves are poorly marked or not marked at all. Only about half of the graves have headstones, the rest are only marked with the Funeral Home Markers or have concrete forms poured over the entire grave area with the Funeral Home Marker embedded in the concrete as the only marker, There is only ONE double headstone in the entire cemetery.

Except for the first row in the back, there doesn't seem to be any real rhyme or reason as to how the graves in the cemetery are laid out, I will try my best to describe the area by rows and location. Some of the graves have hedges planted on top of them with the hedge growing up high enough that the marker is very well hidden. Some of them that are unmarked, I had gotten a name only from a map the church office had on the wall, I found that their map was incomplete and incorrect in some areas as well. The original church burned down several years ago so some of the records are missing. If anyone finds a missing relative here or has any questions, the church people are very friendly and will try to help. For most of the graves with Funeral Home Markers, I will also include the name of the home so you may contact them as well. At the end of this list, I will give ph #'s and addresses to these homes as well.

The church map, of the front cemetery area started at the back and as you are looking towards the front, I will start the rows on the left side, The rows are not straight so this will be approximate locations only, On each entry I will give as much information as I can as I have never seen a cemetery with graves set up quite like this one and the unusual way things are here may be very interesting to a researcher that happens to find a relative in this list, I have used a few abbreviation to cut down on the descriptions some, Many graves will have more than one marker. I did the survey 11 Apr 2000.

Behind the new church building approx 20-25 feet, there are two graves for men who used to be the Priests of this church, They are hidden underneath bushes and cannot be seen until you are almost upon them, denoted with an asteriek *

FHM = Funeral Home Marker
CS= Concrete slab or form on top of grave area
CS-M = Concrete form on grave area with FHM embedded in concrete

What makes us Different?

Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
