This cemetery is so overgrown that it is easily passed without being seen. We visited on 17 September 2005 and had difficulty getting to most of the headstones.
I live in Georgia and have no way of knowing who to contact in Brunswick County. When I submitted the inventory to the Brunswick County website of USGenWeb, the person who processed the information suggested I list this cemetery with you.
