In 2012, Chicora began an ambitious project to identify cemeteries and associate them with tax parcels in order to help descendants and other researchers locate cemeteries. The work was also intended to help developers avoid finding cemeteries during the course of their projects, causing delays and additional financial burdens. We sought to provide a means of providing proactive, rather than reactive, preservation of cemetery resources. This report documents the second, and final, phase of the project, conducted between July 30, 2013 and September 30, 2014. This phase was also funded by the Richland County Conservation Commission and it took the results from Phase 1 and sought to refine locations and visit each cemetery. Verbal directions were refined, UTM coordinates were obtained, a simple one-page form was used to document current conditions, and photographs were taken.
