I found a fairly well hidden, unkept cemetary in the woods near my shop in Greenwood SC. Graves are laid in brick coming up out of the ground about a foot, on top is a large concrete slab with the inscriptions on it, many are cracked, one is partially uncoverd. Thickets and dead branches hide it pretty well on top of the small plato it sets on. The land is being cleared for commercial use about 15 feet away from the graves.There are 14 graves we ( My wife and I) found, all but Three are Partlows. Inscriptions are hard to read.
On two Graves the bodies are buried under ground and have a head stone, John H. Partlow, and Joshua Jones, these have birth and death dates, the rest are bricked tombs with date of death and age of death; Years, Months, Days, and sometime hours.
Grave inscriptions are:
