Please use the selection (navigation) bar at top to select cemeteries of interest.
It would be wonderful if all Dillon researchers would help each other by contributing burial
information on their ancestors. If you have tombstone inscriptions and/or photographs to contribute, please send
them to me and I will create a link from this list to a separate page of burials for that
cemetery, or add the information to existing pages. If you can provide any information at all
on Dillon County cemeteries and/or their histories, please
Please note the wonderful contributions posted here through the generosity of your fellow
researchers. Of special note, Mrs. Dora Louise Easterling Drost, the former Mrs. McCollum,
author of Some Cemetery Inscriptions from Dillon County, South Carolina, gave me permission to
post her copyrighted work representing decades of cemetery research and full surveys.
As of September 1, 2001, the list of cemeteries on this site, begun in 1995,
includes the following:
1. All Dillon County cemeteries named in the Bicentennial Project (D.A.R., Colonial
Dames and U.D.C. chapters) "Cemeteries in Dillon County and Upper Marion County"
published in binder form in the late 1970's,
2. All Dillon County cemetery names found in an online search at U.S.G.S.,
3. All Dillon County cemetery names found in "101 Cemeteries in Marion County
South Carolina", published 1985 by the Marion County Historical Society,
4. Most, if not all, cemeteries surveyed by Mrs. Dora Louise Easterling McCollum Drost in
the 1950's, used here by the author's permission, and
5. A few cemeteries not found in any known "cemetery books"; there are surely
many more of these and I hope researchers will let us know about them.
