This is a single grave of one Elias
Fort. When traveling west on Highway 341 from Brunswick, you will
make a left turn onto Post Road and about 2.5 miles down and on the right,
about one tenth of a mile off of the road, is the grave of Elias Fort.
I have taken pictures of this grave.
Originally, this was a fairly large
cemetery with maybe 100 graves more or less. The cemetery was
bulldozed, and rumor has it, that the stones were dumped in a swamp
somewhere. Eliasí grave site was moved to its present location.
However, one wonders if the whole grave was moved, or just the marker?
According the the burial index that
Ruth Vicent has compiled, one other burial has been recorded for this
cemetery that we know of:
Sherrod Sheffield AKIN who
was born 10 January 1816 and died 1 April 1863 in Wayne County.
The marker for Elias Fort is a
stone pillar with four sides, and an inscription on each side as follows:
AUGUST 8, 1786
Blessed are the dead
who die in the Lord.
APRIL 19, 1858
