Old Belleville or Troup Cemetery

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.
