Magnolia C.M.E. Church is located in the Brookman Community, 4.6 miles west of
exit 29 off of Interstate 95 in Brunswick, Glynn County, Georgia. The
cemetery is currently and active cemetery. The following transcription was
taken on 15 February 2003.
There may be more gravesites that are unmarked all together.
I only transcribed the sites that were marked, either by a headstone, flowers,
or funeral home marker. The ones listed as unmarked below means that the
had some sort of marker, just nothing to identify who the person is that is
I have received some family information on the people buried
within this cemetery, and who may be interred in some of the unmarked graves.
Please take a look at this info right after the transcription, the two starred
items are people who are interred in and unmarked grave.
