Locations of McIntosh County Cemeteries

McIntosh County Cemetery Locations….Just added to www.georgiapioneers.com

McIntosh County is one of the oldest counties in Georgia located along the Altamaha River. The first settlers were from the Isle of Skye in Scotland and establish industries such as logging and shrimping. They came with Oglethorpe in 1735 and settled the town of New Inverness (later Darien), named after Inverness, Scotland. The location resembled Inverness so far as having a beautiful seaport and they were able to stabilize an economy which transported products to Savannah, Frederica and Charleston.

The list of cemeteries includes the oldest plots and relieves the researcher the task of searching out the woods. Believe me, I have done this in the past when these cemeteries were grown over in scrubs and invisible. Thus, the list is welcome. It provides the name and directions. Many of these families intermarried, so if you are researching coastal families, it is a good idea to search more than one cemetery.
