Location: A short distance north of S-18-48 at the end of a field west of the dairy owned by Richard W. Durr.
Michael Durr was enumerated in the 1790 Census in St. Georges Parish, Dorchester County, Charleston District, as Michael Derr (page 33). He had five daughters and four sons, one of which was Jacob Durr who had a son named John Durr who is buried along with his wife in a walled-in enclosure at the Durr Family Cemetery. The walled-in enclosure surrounding those graves was made from hand made brick which was plastered with mortar. This cemetery was established sometime after the end of the Civil War, and John Durr was buried there in 1878. We have recently been told that some Wimberlys or their descendents were buried there but no markers remain. Ella Belle Durr Kizer and Kerry Durr
