I am preaching at the Congaree Baptist Church in Gadsden, SC, and am in the process of putting together a history of that church. In going through your material on the cemetery and going into the cemetery myself, I have found several errors in your names and dates. Would you like for me to update you on this and also give you material from the church records of people who are buried in the cemetery for whom there is no marker?

Reese cemetery on Montgomery Lane, off SC 48 (Bluff Road). Joseph Reese was the first pastor of Congaree B.C.. That was the area he lived in. In that cemetery there are 10 stones that are readable and several that have a base but no stone. Any information about it would be appreciated. He pastored the church from 1768 to 1795. He died March 5, 1795. However, his stone is not one that can be read.
