Koger Gravestone Inscriptions

Koger Gravestone Inscriptions

Below are two inscriptions taken from gravestones at Koger Plantation. Lillian H. Harley, Pattie W. Heaton, and Lillian D. Kizer were taken to the gravesites by Fitzhugh L. Sweatman, Jr. in 1979. They then published a book titled Cemetery Inscriptions of Dorchester County, South Carolina in which they included the Koger gravestones.

In this transcription abbreviations, spellings, and punctuation marks have been preserved. Line breaks also remain intact, as well as column structure. Indentations and spacing are difficult to replicate on the Web and may be distorted or omitted. [?] represents an unknown word.
