This cemetery is located near the Black River.
 From Sumter, take Hwy 378 east toward I-95. 
Approaching the swamp and after crossing the third bridge
 the cemetery is on a hill in the woods on right.
 It is after third bridge and before first median-crossing.

The approximate GPS location is:

  Long 33.900217 and Lat -80.163460

"This cemetery has been planted with ground palms, daffodils andwhite bells among others.
I believe many of the stones have fallen & are covered w/understory debris;
 It is very overgrown and in need of attention.
 I will volunteer my time to help any descendants interested
in an effort to restore and preserve this cemetery."
