History: Reuben O'Berry was living in this southwestern portion of McIntosh County in 1802. Apparently they raised cattle because Reuben King recorded having purchased hides from "Mr. Obry" (O'Berry) for his tanning business in Darien. (source 4) The Index to Headright and Bounty Grants County in 1808 and 1816 (source 4). A sign on an oak tree identifies this old Cemetery. Only a few Unmarked graves were located, as well as some fence posts and remnants of a wire fence. Later, the O'Berrys were buried in Plum Orchard Cemetery. We are grateful to the Townsend Forest Station Rangers for the Location of O'Berry Cemetery.
