|My interest in the Old
Presbyterian Church Cemetery started with two death
certificates....those of my second great grandparents, Cephas Manly
McMichael and Rachael Elizabeth Jennings.
Both certificates state they are buried in the Old Presbyterian Church Cemetery. However, their grave markers are side-by-side in Sunnyside Cemetery, also in Orangeburg, SC. (I can send you photos of the markers if you'd like them for your files.)
The Cemetery is located at the corner of Doyle St.
and St. Paul St. in downtown Orangeburg, South Carolina.
Update, 22 February 2012. I received the following e-mail from Sharon Adair Dantzler. Thanks, Sharon, this sheds on the mystery of their burial....
My visit on 4 February 2012 (see the photos below) led me to infer that, at one time time, the cemetery had been neglected. There are many broken and missing stones, as well as broken and missing brick walls and pieces of wrought iron fences. It is very well-kept now and shows that much effort has gone into preserving this valuable piece of our heritage. I want to thank all of those that have a part in the upkeep of the cemetery.
