WIGGINS PEOPLE CEMETERY

This cemetery was donated by Joseph Sinclair Wiggins as a burial place for African-American people that worked for his family in the Waynesville area. Joseph Sinclair Wiggins was an Attorney At Law in the Glynn County Circuit, and was very active in politics for Wayne County, a State Representative, and Justice of Inferior Court. He was also a Captain in the 3rd Battalion Georgia Cavalry, and the 4th Georgia Cavalry during the War between the states.
