Emanuel Griner was born and grew up in Effingham County. It was cut into Bulloch County when it was formed in 1796. In 1829 he sold his 807 acre farm located in Bulloch county to John Mikell and bought a farm from John Smith and moved to Lowndes County, where the present town of Nashville, Berrien County is located. He lived on his plantation there until his death in 1852.

It is now known as the "Old Cemetery" in Nashville. His wife died soon after and is also buried there. Thier graves are unmarked.
