I wanted to share this family photo of May Family Burial Ground, with the community. Location: Chesterfield County, South Carolina. Date: unknown.  Those buried there are now remembered by the placement of a granite marker at nearby Elizabeth Baptist Church.

Thanks for sharing this, Janie. It's terribly sad when grave markers are destroyed like that but what a gift to have this note showing where your ancestors are buried.

I remember reading in Our Kin, by Laban Mikes Hoffman, who mentioned several times that graves of older ancestors cannot be found  for this very same reason. How sad.
