  1. Cheri, do you have many Quakers in your family trees?

    1. The Quaker Cemetery in Camden,SC is named after the original group of Quakers who owned the land in the 1700's. It was deeded over to the city in the late 1800's. The name was just kept the same. As far as I know, I don't have any ancestors who were part of the Quakers but I do have a lot buried in this cemetery! Thanks for reading and for the question!
