Clinch Chapel Methodist Church-Camden County, Georgia

Macchca Mowat Alderman

This church traces its roots to right after the Civil War. The first church was built in 1896. The current structure was built in 1992.

This cemetery features a mixture of headstones. Many contain concrete markers with applique cherubs and hands. One of the more intriguing markers is the Madonna bust which can be found in several cemeteries along the coast. Of the ones I’ve found, the churches are several miles apart and in different counties. Both the applique markers and the Madonna busts communicate the regional nature of vernacular markers. The Madonna markers can all be seen here.
