I have very sad news if you are looking for friends or loved ones at Sattes Cemetery. The public access is completely blocked by fallen trees. I reached it by a private route and found it to be completely overgrown. I was searching for my grandfather's and grandmother's graves, but that is now impossible. I'm afraid that the cemetery has been reclaimed by Mother Earth.

I was at Sattes Cemetery this past weekend. You can now go through most of it, but it is highly overgrown. My family and I intend on cleaning as much of it up as we can as soon as the weather permits.

Hi, I saw your earlier posts. My great grandfather is buried there, per his death certificate. Charles R Miller, 1872-1938. That is wonderful that you would do some work to clean it up! I am in California, or I would be very happy to help. I am very interested if there are still any markers, especially my gr grandfathers, of course. If there is something that I can do from out here to help, please let me know. Grateful for your help. Nancy S., Lancaster CA

Could you please tell me where this cemetery is located. I can't seem to find any information on it. My grandmothers sister is buried there. She died in 1909 at the age of 9. Her name was Georgia A. Mundy

I have able bodied sons that will clean it up if someone can show me how to get there! I have family buried there and would love to get it cleaned up. My dad used to do it but he is in bad health now.

According to a map I found on Google, it is in Charleston. Washington Street West (or alternate 7th avenue), to Hannah Street to York Street. I went there years ago with my grandmother but I don't know if these are correct directions or not. I can't clean up trees etc., but once the really bad part is cleaned up, we can help keep it maintained. My great grandfather and others are buried here.

Sattes Cemetery Restoration Project: My husband and I visited the Sattes Cemetery in September this year and due to ongoing restoration were able to find the graves of his ancestors Joseph and Almira Lewis Taylor. The cemetery was accessible from the York Avenue entrance and is being looked after by a young couple living nearby. They helped us find the graves we were looking for and told us about an article in the Sunday, September 3, 2017, Charleston "Gazette" outlining the restoration project. That Sattes-Parrish Cemetery Association has obtained a grant to assist in the restoration of this cemetery. There are over 640 burials in the cemetery. If you are interested in joining the Sattes-Parrish Cemetery Association and in helping with the restoration please call 304-941-9223.
