Palmetto

Special thanks to Ruth N. Vicent for allowing an online index!
You can email Ruth for information on purchasing the Palmetto CD at:

Palmetto Cemetery is located about 3 miles east of Exit 36 off of Interstate 95, on Hwy. 341 in Brunswick.  It is the largest cemetery in Brunswick, next to Greenwood, which happens to be the "neighbor" cemetery to Palmetto.  This photo is taken of the entrance to the west side of Palmetto.

There is a transcription for this cemetery that has been put together in a book that comes to over 800 pages!  Not only does this book have the grave listings, but it also has family information taken from funeral home records, census, city directories, and the family descendants themselves.  A great genealogical resource.  Unfortunately the books are no longer available, but it is available on CD.

I have a copy of the book on CD that is updated on a yearly basis by Ms. Ruth N. Vicent, just email me using the link at the bottom of every page in this web that says "Contact".  Ms. Vicent can provide lookups too; her email address is at the top of this page, you will have to enter it manually the first two letters are "r" and "n" then "vicent" not vincent.

Scroll to the bottom of this page to access the index to the Palmetto Cemetery Book. If you find your ancestor, please email us, and we will be happy to give you more info, remember, this books has more than just burials listed.  The index has not been updated for several years.

This photo merely depicts the eastern half of the cemetery.  Here alone are hundreds, if not thousands, of graves.  Just about everybody was buried here or in Oak Grove (city) cemetery, which was once known as the Brunswick Cemetery.
