This cemetery listing for Oak Grove reads like a "who's who" of Camden County Settlers.

Under the old oaks ladden with spanish moss you'll find the first settlers of St.Marys as well as the founders of both Kingsland and Woodbine. Acadians have found their final resting place behind brick walls. In addition, there are numerous yellow fever victims resting under the moss draped oak trees.

Most of the cemeteries in Camden County are segregated. Very few mix burials. This isn't really an "unwritten rule" anymore. For the most part people tend to be buried with their families. In the past segregation was forced on the people, today it's mainly a matter of wanting to be buried near loved ones.

After the white families built a wall around their sections, the black families decided to do the same for their side. Walls around cemeteries helped keep wandering farm animals from rooting around and trampling the graves.

The new sections of the cemetery, divided from the old by a small dirt road, are in much neater rows, making finding your loved one a bit easier. It's also not nearly as crowded.
