Elioch Manor Cemetery

       The Elioch Manor Cemetery is located in the Elioch Trace Subdivision, which may be located by traveling east on Rt. 711 (Huguenot Trail) from St. Luke’s Church. Turn right onto Elioch Manor Drive, go to the end of the road and park, and walk straight ahead about 75 yards. The old Elioch Manor house is to the left.

     The cemetery was surveyed on March 2, 1997 by Sharon L. Nowery, Catherine L. Nowery and Claude Ridings. The cemetery is enclosed in a partially fallen down granite stone fence and is overgrown with brush and vines.

     There is only one tombstone, but possibly other unmarked graves. St. Luke’s burial records mention an Edward Taylor being buried at Elioch April 7, 1873.
