From Cottageville, South Carolina drive northwest on Hwy 17 for little over a mile, then north on Hwy 651, close to one mile. The cemetery is on the left or west side of road.
Ms. Call stated that William Washington Adams started this cemetery, Mr. Adams attended an ice cream social at his church, the ice cream was bad and several people fell ill. Mr. Adams told his family that he know he was going to die, and upon his death that he wanted his body to be carried around the house 3 times and then buried under the oak tree in the back yard. His family followed his wishes and he is buried under the oak tree.
I have placed and asterisk after those names I received from Ms. Betty Call, which have no markers.
I have transcribed from the readings done on Dec 31, 2002 when Kim Grisson, Rachael Brower and I visited the cemetery and copied from the tombstones.
