Within these walls are buried Captain Troup, British Naval officer, and his wife, Catherine McIntosh Troup. They were the parents of George M. Troup, Governor of Georgia 1823 – 1827; U. S. Senator 1829-1833. It was on this plantation that George M. Troup spent his early boyhood.
Ten other graves lie within this enclosure; the inscriptions on the marble slabs which marked them were effaced by time before 1850.
This plot, like many historical cemeteries of the Georgia coast, is surrounded by a tabby wall.
