Old Colonial Cemetery
Said to be the oldest cemetery in Savannah, however the very first burials were in a different location. For example, my research led me to Joseph Coles of London who came on Oglethorpe's first voyage and died soon after his arrival. Some old citizens showed me an area several streets away where a number of burials occurred. The hardships suffered until about 1742 caused many torun away to Charleston.
