Holtzendorff-Dutch Hill Cemetery; Camden County, Georgia @GlynnGen.com

Holtzendorff-Dutch Hill Cemetery
Records compiled by Tara Tutcher-Kimmel, Amy Lyn Hedrick, Andrea Witwer, & Karen M. Gleason

This cemetery is the final resting place of people who were once enslaved by the Holtzendorff family and the descendants of those enslaved. Kinlaw Cemetery and Woodbine Cemetery could be considered "sister cemeteries", forming a triangle surrounding Berne Plantation which was owned by the John Lewis Kale Holtzendorff family. You will find the same surnames in all three cemeteries, Dawson, Holtzendorff, Nightingale, Baker, Campbell, and others.

THIS CEMETERY IS ON PRIVATE PROPERTY, PLEASE CONTACT THE KINGSLAND HUNTING CLUB FOR ACCESS

Death certificates record burials in Woodbine Cemetery when relatives are listed as being buried at "Crooked River" or "Holtzendorf(f) Cemetery", therefore, when I found such instances, I included the person in this transcription, just in case. One person is recorded as being buried at Wolf Bay and another at Woodbine Cemetery but earlier researchers have them listed in this cemetery so I have recorded them for posterity.

Most of this listing was compiled by using death certificates found online at FamilySearch.org using the Georgia and Florida death certificate databases. I have not gone through all of the death records to find all listings because, unfortunately, you cannot search by place of burial.

So far, I have found 70 burial records either through the death certificates, publications like Camden's Challenge, or an actual tombstone that was found.

As you can see by the sign pictured to the left, this cemetery is in peril. You can no longer find it as it has been completely overtaken by nature. We literally had to cut our way in when previous photos showed this cemetery was being cared for and kept cut back. 

When driving up to where we thought the cemetery was located, we passed by the sign, but in about 30 feet we saw little white crosses peeking up through the brush so we turned around and parked, then came back on foot which is when I saw the sign, then we started edging our way in about five feet, then we would come out, walk down a little ways, go back in, and we counted dozens of crosses, some damaged, one had a tree fallen on top of it, then we found our first tombstone.

This cemetery needs help, it needs professional help as you cannot just go in and chop away as you will destroy the wooden crosses, same as if a controlled burn was done to remove the brush. Maybe, one day, someone will have the funds and the man-power to clean this cemetery out because, eventually, it will be completely lost. It takes up at least one acre, maybe more.
