Part of the & Projects
The Waters Cemetery is located in Emanuel
County, near Oak Park. From Oak Park, go North on U.S.1 to the first paved road
to the left, this is Pendleton Springs Road. Take Pendleton Springs Road until
you come to the second paved road on the left, this will be Leman Road . The
second dirt road to the right is Waters Cemetery Road. The cemetery is at the
end of this road.
Family history states that the land for this cemetery was donated by Gabriel Waters(1833-1908). Gabriel was a corporal in the 10th Georgia Infantry, Army of North Virginia and was wounded at Gettysburg, PA. He married Irena Yeomans on Dec.13,1852 in Emanuel Co. and they had three children, William, Ephriam T. and Sarah(Sally).
The names are in alphabetical order for ease in locating names. I have written the informatioin as it appears on the graves and tombstones. This list is complete up to March 11, 1999. Anyone buried after this date will not be shown here. Happy hunting!
