Location: South of Sapelo Island. Private property.

History: Doboy Island, one of McIntosh County's barrier islands, was a Crown Grant to Jonathan Bryan in 1759 (source 2). During the timber era the Island was a main ship loading facility with a ship chandlery, dwellings and a steam sawmill. There may have been other burials on the island but one headstone "a good distance East of the dock" was still there in the 1930s and was recorded by Annie Fisher Gill. It is written in German.
