Over the past eleven years excavations have been conducted at nineteenth century rice plantation near Coosawhatchie, South Carolina. This site has yielded an amazing assortment of artifacts as well as multiple structures associated with plantation life in the Antebellum South. It was during the course of this work that a long forgotten family cemetery was relocated. This paper details the process of excavation and locating of the cemetery, analysis of artifacts recovered, and the determination of the use of the area as that of a place of interment.
