Driving directions: Drive south from Bamberg on route 301, after passing Mizpah Methodist Church on the left side of the road, turn left on route 64. Drive one mile and turn left onto a dirt road between pine trees. Go two tenths of a mile and the cemetery is in a circle of oak and other trees that are located in the middle of the road. Circle around the cemetery and parkbehind it where the graves are more accessible. Transcriber's Notes: This cemetery is in desperate need of cleaning. Note links to images of tombstones.
