New Inverness later Darien, McIntosh Co., GA was settled by Highland Scots in 1736. Darien was the only Gaelic-speaking community in the Georgia Colony. The pioneer families of this seaport town were buried in the original city cemetery (1736-1806); however, their grave markers are no longer visible.
A remnant of the Old City Cemetery is located at the corner of Jefferson and Market Streets in Darien's Old Towne Historic District. This preserved section of the original cemetery contains only three visible graves. Today it is surrounded by a high, chain-link fence with a gate.
In 1977 several Georgia genealogical societies erected a stone monument listing the names of heads of households who were among the early burials:
Hugh Clark, John Cunningham, Donald Fraser, John Grant, Major Elisha B. Hopkins, James MacKay, Archibald McBean, Alexander McDonald, Lt. Colonel William McIntosh, Thomas McKenzie, Angus McLean, Donald McLeod, Hugh Morrison, Alexander Munro, Alexander Murray, David Stewart, Robert Sutherland, Colonel Abitha Thomas.
