Berry Edwin Knight's grave is in the Medlock/Knight/Puckett Cemetery now known as the Old Medlock Cemetery. It is located 3 miles North of Ware Shoals SC in Laurens County on Buddy Knight Road. It is no way close to Orangeburg SC. The cemetery is located about 1 mile from my house and I was there about a month ago. Directions from Ware Shoals: go 3 miles north from Ware Shoalson Hwy 25 toward Greenville SC when you pass Harmony Methodist Church the next road to the left is Buddy Knight Road. Cemetery is not far down the road around a curve on the right. Hopes this helps.
I noticed after sending the first message that you said Knight/Puckett Cemetery that is still correct. It was once known as the Knight/Medlock/Puckett Cemetery. Most people today call it the Old Medlock Cemetey but John Knight orginally owned the land. When Harmony Church was built the members started being buried there.
This Berry Edwin Knight is buried in the Medlock/Knight Cemetery located on Buddy Knight Road-- 3 miles north of Ware Shoals, SC in Laurens county. He was my G-G-Grandfather's younger brother. They both were in the confederacy.
