From Neeses go north on US 321 about 1/10 miles to Highway 389, then northwest on Highway 389 1.6 miles to S-38-132 (Firetower Road), west on this road about 2.8 miles. Going from Springfield on Highway 4 go 8/10ths miles to Highway 3 going north 3.9 miles to S-38-132 (Firetower Road) going east on this road 3.5 miles. The cemetery is on the north side of the road.
This cemetery was part of the Henry Gleaton farm. Henry was a local banker. When we visited, this cemetery was in the middle of a cotton field. At one time it had a fence around it, but it was broken down or partially removed.
Many of the headstones were deteriorated and it was almost impossible to read some of the dates. Information in parenthesis is mine and not on the headstones. All of the Corbett, Wooley, Phillips and Bean families in this cemetery were related to the Gleaton family. This is not a complete listing of all the stones in the cemetery, but almost. We took movie pictures at the time and have a few still photos.
This reading is dedicated to the memory of Paul Jay Gleaton, our "Dad", who was born at Neeses, South Carolina and took us on a reminiscent tour of South Carolina and Georgia and the Gleaton family in 1993. He lived most of his life in Washington State. His father, Edgar Thomas, and his brother Johnnie J, are buried in this cemetery, as well as his grandparents John Wesley Gleaton and Rebecca Tindall Gleaton.
Jim and Paul Jay Gleaton and I walked and read all existing and legible headstones on Sep 11, 1993.
