Adding interments to findagrave.com.

Find A Grave is a website that contains millions of gravesite info that has been added through the years. With the advent of the internet, Find A Grave has become an invaluable resource for genealogists. We have over 300 graves spanning over two centuries in New Hope Cemetery. We also have a census that was prepared by the Orangeburg Historical Society showing interments through 2002, which gives us a good starting point. Here is an example of a site at Wesley Grove Cemetery in Cordova.
