Slave Cemetery at Cottage Plantation

Monck's Corner, SC

The old slave cemetery  was in a corner of the plantation.  Today, the principal portion of the cemetery lies in a CP and L right of way; they were good enough to put a fence around most of the cemetery several years ago.  A black AME Church, officially established in 1874, initially used the old slave cemetery as the Chuch cemetery - this was not unusual in the post-Civil War South, since many of the congregants had parents and grandparents buried in the old cemetery.  When the Church was rebuilt in later years at the corner of Gaillard Rd. and Old Hwy. 52, the old cemetery was abandoned.
