Capt. George Cooper is actually buried (link) at Salem Black River PC., the church he was so devoted to, rather than this cemetery on his former plantation lands.
However, immigrant John Shaw, his infant son (buried 1801, first burial), and two of John's grandchildren (last one buried 1822) are buried in this fairly large (about 100 by 90 feet) but unmarked, moated cemetery. John Shaw's plantation was next door, barely downstream & involving the cross-over area at highway #327 & I-95. The cemetery at Salem Black River ("Brick Church") Presbyterian Church was not actually laid out until 1829, the year that Capt. Cooper died.
In the late 1960s, a headstone was there, "In memory of Mary Elvira daughter of Wm. A. and E. E. Shaw; born 14th August 1820. Died 14th October 1822. Aged 2 years, and 2 months. W. T. White" [White was likely the engraver]
Another headstone was there, "Sam R. Shaw who died 25th Aug. 1818, aged 14 months & 3 days Sweet Babe rest with the glorious morn"
