Tate-Blanton Cemetery
Cherokee County, South Carolina

Contributed by Evelyn Pipkin, Sep 14, 2000 [eham1014@aol.com]. Total records = 12.

This cemetery is located south of Gaffney, SC at Timberidge. Take Hwy 18 south and go to County Road 586, Star Ridge Road. Turn left past Cat's Cr. Road and Moose Road about 1-2 miles. The cemetery is on a rise on the right side of the road, just above lots where two trailer homes are located.

The following comes from an actual visit to the cemetery in 1995 and again in 1996. The information in brackets is my own notations and do not appear on the tombstones)

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.
