Rehoboth Cemetery – Manning, South Carolina

South Carolina  |  SC Picture Project  |  Clarendon County Photos  |  Rehoboth Cemetery

This isolated cemetery in rural Clarendon County stands alone on a cleared piece of land that suggests a church or other building may have sat nearby at one time. The cemetery, marked with a stone and called Rehoboth Cemetery, may have belonged to a church by the same name.

Records exist of a Methodist church called New Rehoboth Methodist Church in East Jordan in Clarendon County. This church was built on an elevated lot as a chapel in 1831. Its purpose was to house parishioners for worship services during periods when the lower lands were susceptible to flooding. It is described as a “colonial frame with a spire” and was sold to an African-American congregation in 1932.

Records also indicate that the New Rebohoth Methodist Church’s first clergy was “the same as Rehoboth,” suggesting that there was an earlier church with a similar name nearby. Whether or not this cemetery is connected to either church is unknown to the South Carolina Picture Project.

Here is a good source on the scant information we have: Unfortunately, we do not know who cares for the property. Best of luck!
