RE: Coldbrook
Yes, Unfortunately I left Savannah 38 yrs ago. I live in Hollywood Fl. I will be in Savannah however in August. The grave you found was the grave of one of the Slaves. there were two, one infant one little girl. We always thought that since Philip Ulmer, ( my ggg grandfather) actually placed stones at their graves he may well have been their father. Philip Ulmer also died in 1856..his daughter Mary Deseverger also buried at Coldbrook , died in 1857. His daughter Eliza died about the same time she was 9 yrs old. there were several buried at Coldbrook about the same time, there may have been a contaigous outbreak, yellow fever or thypoid? when I was young there were still about 9 headstones still mother says she remembers when there were about 15...names I remember there were Philip Ulmer, Charles Ulmer, Eliza Ulmer, Mary Elizabeth Desverger, Jane Ulmer,William Ulmer, mind forgets...I hope you have success when you go back...keep me informed..thanks so much for all you do.

RE: Coldbrook
I grew up visiting the plantation, as it was my mothers family. I remember when the headstones in the family cemetary were still there. I had a halloween party there in Oct 1972. We had the headstones were unfortunately stolen from the cemetary one night in the early 80's before Mrs Cooler, the caretaker left.
there was a few graves also located behind a slave cabin that was still standing at the time ( when I was about 14 it was still there) of the graves was 1856. it was a little girl...when the plantation house was being moved and the land being subdivided my mother contacted the desendents of the little slave girl to alert them that the grave was in danger of also being vandilized and lost. But they did not take any action. did you get a photo of the headstone you saw? could I see it?
The Ulmer family cemetary, was about 35 to 50 yards, West South West of the bottom step of the front porch of the house. ....

Not the REAL Coldbrook Cemetary
This Cemetary was the Kessler Cemetary in Rincon on Goshen Rd. This Cemetary is located at the back of a subdivision built in the 1990s named after a former old plantation of the same name...but this is NOT on Coldbrook Plantation and it us NOT the family plantation Cemetary , the REAL COLDBROOK CEMETARY. The Ulmer and Keller family are the ONLY people buried in the REAL Coldbrook Cemetary at Coldbrook Plantation !!!!! I know because I am a part of the Ulmer family!!! The real Coldbrook plantation is at the end of Keller Rd in CHATHAM County...MILES AWAY from this Kessler Cemetary located at the back of the Coldbrook Subdivision in Rincon in EFFINGHAM COUNTY !!!!! Get YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT!!!
