The Archaeology Survey & Grave Pin Project


First St. John's Baptist Cemetery
Hooper-McWilliams Cemetery
Turner-Sewell Cemetery

There are an abundance of unmarked graves at
these cemeteries.  Some have personalized engraved stones, 
but the majority host a simple rock or
nothing-at-all designating the burial sites.

Please help 
The River Line Historic Area raise
for updated archaeology surveys at all 3 cemeteries
 to identify individual grave sites, so
each one can be marked with a numbered metal pin.
The pins will serve as permanent grave markers
coinciding with the survey map to provide a
tangible inventory reference for future generations.

Your donation to this project will
perpetually affect the integrity of these historic cemeteries.
