Myers Plantation
Slave and Family

To save space, I have combined the Myers Family and the Myers Slave cemetery together.  In actuality, they are in the same location, and the two people buried in Myers Family, have been removed.

Myers Plantation is a little hard to find if you are not familiar with Glynn County.  From the intersection of Hwy. 17 south and Hwy. 82 west, travel four miles west on Hwy. 82 and turn right on Emanuel Church Road.  About 1.6 miles on your left will be Emanuel Church Loop, turn left.  You will go about one half mile, crossing a railroad track with a stop sign.  Be sure to STOP at this because the train goes about 100mph and you won't know it until it hits you!

Turn left onto Timber Landing Road after crossing the track.  You can only go left as the road dead ends to a hunting club gate.  About eight tenths of a mile on your left will be Myers Plantation PE.  It is merely a dirt driveway, one branch goes off to the left and the other off to the right.  You want to go right.  Five tenths of a mile down this drive you will pass through a gateway, keep going straight for one more tenth of a mile then turn right and go another tenth of a mile, passing in front of a white double-wide mobile home.

You will turn left after you pass the mobile home onto a grassy lane and another tenth of a mile you will be in the beginning of the cemetery.  You can either park here, or turn right, keeping the little camper on your left.  The camper was the home of the care taker who recently passed away.

Unfortunately, in the slave section, only one grave is marked with a name, and one with a concrete slab.  In the family section is an old crumbling brick tomb that was the final resting place of George C. Myers and his wife Isabella Dodge.  According to the family, George and wife were moved to another location.

There appear to be many gravesites out here, one must watch where one walks or one may end up falling into a grave!  Due to the lack of markers, it is unknown how many people are buried here, and who they were.  From doing various research, I have come across three death records for African-American people who are said to be buried here.

Cemetery visited in August 2002 and June 2003.

Joseph and Annie are the parents of Horace, Herbert, Maude, Minder, Verneathia, and Evelena.  They have two other children:  Isiah LAMAR and Mary (Lamar) MACK, who could quite possibly be buried here also.

In talking with The Brunswick Funeral Home, it is learned that they do not have any records for this time period, nor do they have any idea of how many burials have taken place out there.

If you have any further information to add, please feel free to email the webmaster, and let us know who else made this their final resting place.
