Duplicate cemetery - please merge Old Stand and Old Stand Cemetery. One has the map, one doesn't. One has location description, one doesn't. Cedar Swamp is considered part of Kingstree, SC simply because it is just outside of Kingstree and is the Cedar Swamp community. No other way to describe the location. Please edit the location verbage (see below)
http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=cr&CRid=2570097
and
http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi...Scnty=2357&
Location:
This is an African American graveyard on the south side of Home Swamp in the Cedar Swamp Community just outside of Kingstree, SC. It is not used for burials anymore. There are numerous unmarked graves.
