Quaker Cemetery and rural garden cemeteries

A group of Irish Quakers were the earliest group of colonists to settle Camden, arriving here via the Wateree River in 1751. In 1759, Quaker Samuel Wyly gave the Friends, as the Quakers were called, 4 acres of land in the southwest corner of the town limits to be used as a burying ground.

I have spoken to some people who state they do not attend the recreation center because it agitates their breathing. I would question whether or not all the members of county council have visited this center in ...
