This cemetery is located in the southwest section of the churchyard, at the corner of East Main and Lindsay streets in Bennettsville SC.

This cemetery was originally located north of the church. In 1955 all of the graves were moved to the Oak Ridge Cemetery, in order to expand the parking facilities. In the 1980s the gravestones were returned to the new churchyard area southwest of the church. The graves are arranged as they originally were. There are some unmarked or unreadable graves.

My husband and I walked and read this cemetery on Jul 31, 2002, using a digital camera.
