BAKER CEMETERY
Dillon County, South Carolina
(near NC-SC border)

HISTORICAL NOTE: Baker Cemetery was originally the site of the old Ashpole Presbyterian Church Cemetery. In 1861, the church relocated across the state border into North Carolina, and the new Ashpole Presbyterian Church cemetery was started that same year at its new location.

SURVEY by Sandra Brumbles & Sheila Berry, 22 Feb 2002.

DIRECTIONS: turn right at the caution light in Little Rock and follow this road past Harlee's Bridge to Oakland Rd. Take a left and travel 4 and 2/10 miles to State Line Rd. Right before and I mean right before State Line Road, Baker Cemetery is on the left about 3/10 mile in the woods.

This cemetery has not been kept up at all. I noticed one person was buried there in 1971.
