BLACK OAK CEMETERY 
 
Black Oak Church, Somerton Plantation, Hanover Plantation, and Pooshee Plantation are now under the waters of the Santee Cooper Project. Graves with death dates prior to 1942 in these lots were moved during the construction of Lake Moultrie. (Note: The markers were moved and the graves covered with a cement slab.) The cemetery is located on Black Oak Road (Highway 43) near Bonneau Beach.
