Broadfield Cemetery
African-American

Local death records have created a problem with determining where some folks are buried in northeast Glynn County by using the burial place of "Broadfield, Glynn County, Georgia" and "Broadfield Cemetery". I have found many people with this burial place buried in one of three cemeteries: Petersville, Freedman's Rest, and Elizafield Burial Ground; or, I haven't found a tombstone for them at all.

For example, Elizabeth (Polite) Chambliss' obituary says she was buried in Broadfield Cemetery and her tombstone is in Petersville Cemetery. Maggie Harris' death certificate says she was buried in Broadfield Cemetery, but, her tombstone is at Elizafield Burial Ground. Therefore, I have created a cemetery listing for Broadfield Cemetery for those persons whose tombstone or exact cemetery location has not yet been determined.

The following persons have a burial place listed as Broadfield Cemetery or Broadfield, Georgia or Broadfield, Glynn, Georgia. Each one of these people have not been found buried in any one of the cemeteries in the Broadfield area of Glynn County which is located at Hwy. 17 and Hwy. 99 where the plantations Hofwyl-Broadfield, Elizafield, Grantley, Evelyn, New Hope, and Needwood are located.
