MARION COUNTY, SC CEMETERIES
Compiled by Victoria Proctor, © 1996-2011
This list of cemeteries in Marion County, South Carolina was begun in 1996
yet it is surely not complete. I could really use the help of all Marion County researchers in
making this a better resource for us all. If you know of a cemetery that is not listed,
have tombstone inscriptions or photos to contribute, or can provide some history
for these cemeteries, please
Please note the wonderful contributions posted here through the generosity of your fellow
researchers. Inscriptions of Old Tabernacle Methodist Church Cemetery were contributed by
John E. Turbeville, III, October 1997. I have never found this cemetery in any published
survey. We are all exceptionally grateful to Mr. Turbeville.
Compiled List of Marion Cemeteries:
As of September 19, 2001, my compiled list of cemeteries, begun in 1996,
included the following:
1. All Marion Co. 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 Marion Co. cemetery names found in an online search at U.S.G.S.,
3. All Marion 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. D.L.E. McCollum Drost in
the 1950's, 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.
