Cemeteries of McIntosh County
Buzzards Roost Island
Fort King George
Old Sailors Burial Ground
Shellman Bluff Baptist
cemeteries of McIntosh County have been transcribed and recorded by a
group of folks known as the Lower Altamaha Historical Society.
The cemetery book committee was comprised of Mattie R. Gladstone, Suzanne D. Forsyth, Mariana D. Hagan, Myrtle Newberry, Tanis Cross, Lloyd Y. Flanders, Lillian Schaitberger, and Ellie Legg.
This book was available for purchase from the LAHS; however, their findings have been now uploaded to Find-A-Grave.
It is my intention, to one day visit these cemeteries to photograph and transcribe them myself. I am under no circumstances going to copy the hard work of the LAHS in these pages.
Donations of cemetery transcriptions will be gladly accepted, and greatly appreciated. Right now I am not working on the cemetery transcriptions, they may be a long time in coming.
The cemeteries of McIntosh county are comprised of local heroes and dignitaries, to the final resting places of those that made the county prosper, namely the slaves.
You will find in McIntosh County, the clan Mackintosh and their descendants, also names that are familiar to you in surrounding counties, like Gignilliat, Dunwody, Nightingale, Quarterman, Palmer, Timmons, and many more.
I do have the cemetery book that the LAHS compiled, and will be glad to do lookups, and I am even willing to visit a cemetery and photograph it when queries are submitted to me.
This cemetery book was outdated the day it was printed, for obvious reasons, people die everyday; you can never finish such a publication. There are maps of each cemetery pictured in this, however, they read cemeteries differently than I do, so I have remade the plot maps my way. This was necessary in many cases, as new burials have occurred.
