Footnotes ...

<1>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' (or point-to-point) distance. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Greeleyville) to Point B.If you need the driving distance, we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Greeleyville. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from GreeleyvilleOur distance measurements begin at a specific point in Greeleyville. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 33.5812, Longitude: -79.9893

<3>While we're fans and frequent users of TripAdvisor, you should know that we're also members of the TripAdvisor affiliate program.
<4>The Find-a-Grave website is an excellent research tool with information about a cemetery's location and interments. They also offer a forum for their members which can provide additional help. More information about Find-a-Grave can be found on their website: findagrave.com.
