|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
These are two associated cemeteries in Hunter's Chapel Community, Bamberg County, SC.
PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU ARE ENTERING YOUR MEMORIAL IN THE CORRECT LOCATION. (There are some names that are already entered at the wrong location and some are entered at both locations.)
The "old" Zion Cemetery is located off an unpaved road off Howells Mill Rd, likely on private property. There are no buildings. Some of the graves are within a fence; others are outside of the fence. There are almost certainly some graves that no longer have markers. See http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=cr&CRid=2209291
This memorial site is for the "new" church & cemetery, Zion United Methodist Church, established in 1898. It is on Farrell Rd. Methodist church services are no longer held. The building is now home to the Edisto Mennonite Church.
There may have been a few burials at the old cemetery after 1898 so they could be with loved ones. Some stones may have been moved from one cemetery to the other. Some stones may have been placed at one cemetery even though the burial was at the other. Present day burials are most likely at the new church/cemetery; verify with the funeral home.
