Published to this website on August 26, 2001 By Maynard Poythress. Notes: Generally I interpret the Screven County Area to be Screven, Effingham, Jenkins, Burke, Bulloch and even Chatham Counties. I don't claim to have them all and if I miss one by all means send it to me. The source for these are in part personal readings and rubbings. In recent years, Bud Poythress and I have picked up a few redbugs and even a tick or two in this heroic effort. Also used were county records of sexton's lists available in the Georgia Archives. In a number of instances, Bud and I have photos of tombstones if you wish to inquire about a specific one. I was surprised to note that the list has so few individuals buried earlier than the mid to even late 1800's. It then dawned on me that burials in "maintained" church cemeteries with sexton records was not the custom in the rural South until later.
Sadly, many of these cemeteries are now lost and the ones that aren't are usually in bad condition. MP
