|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
This cemetery is located on the grounds of Fort Jackson near Percival and Screaming Eagle Roads. It is labeled as "Cemetery #19", which corresponds to its number on a 1980 Reservation Map by the Army Corps of Engineers.
The information for this cemetery was obtained froman 1982 Eagle Scout project that compiled an inventory of the graves in the 26 cemeteries that were acquired by Fort Jackson in 1940 when the fort expanded to approximately 53,000 acres by acquiring land that was previously privately owned. This land included many small church and family cemeteries. The families of the deceased in these cemeteries were contacted and given the option of having their deceased relatives relocated to other area cemeteries. Some individual graves were relocated off post while others remained on Fort Jackson. In addition, several of the small churches chose to relocate their entire cemeteries off post.
