Gould
African-American

This cemetery is located on St. Simons Island, directly off of Frederica Road.  The above photo is taken from the back right-hand corner of the cemetery, facing Frederica Road.  My survey of the cemetery was completed in June of 2003.

According to Miriam Rayburn-Steele's notes, three of the unmarked slabs are the graves of:

Othelia Wilson d/o Fannie Davis Wilson.
Lucinda Williams d/o Annie Williams.
Kiah Wilson s/o Fannie Davis Wilson.

Ms. Rayburn-Steele's survey of the cemetery was compiled in 1997, and while doing this survey she was informed that there were about 99 more graves, unmarked, and that the remainder lay under the building and parking lot next door to the cemetery (these "landmarks" were standing in 1997 the landscape has changed drastically since then). I do not have Ms. Rayburn-Steel's research, I only have a few notes and the three burials abovementioned, which, she did not confirm which of the unmarked graves are where.

The following are the transcriptions of the stones as surveyed in June of 2003 by Amy Hedrick and records sourcing other burials that may or may not be marked within the cemetery.
