Search Turnipseed Cemetery:

Cemetery is located near, and almost within sight of (~750') the Broad River in the upper part of Richland County on the east side of the river. It's north of the Broad River and Cedar Creek confluence. Also, it's one mile north of the end of Montgomery Road (S-40-38) on gated, private, farmlands. Montgomery Road ends at the active railroad. THIS ROUTE IS NOT ADVISED AND IS NOT SAFE. The GPS location is not available out of consideration to the landowner.

Two of the headstones are broken up; pieces were scattered and buried just under the grass. There may be more buried as there are three footstones without headstones, unless they were carried off: C S, F T, & W W T (thought to be Souter and Turnipseed graves). Only one headstone remains undamaged and intact.

No depressions, fieldstones, or other potential graves noted.

Two recent CONFEDERATE memorials have been placed but these citizen/soldiers (brothers) are not buried here. They are cenotaphs. See also these two brother's memorials (#151149707 & 138128527) on Find A Grave at Union ARP Church, Richburg, Chester County, SC. They are apparently not buried there either.
