These data are from three sources: Physical surveys by the Amelia Island Genealogy Society in 1995 and 2012, WPA Graves Registration data, and a contribution of Eunice A. Mott which supplies additional burials and the family relationships. This contribution is contained in the Nassau County Genealogist, Vol. IX, #2, Spring 2002. Photographs of each grave are also included with the online data. Search for an indivuidual or browse using links top left.

Thirty three graves are listed, including thirteen wooden markers containing no information. A member of the Mott family states there are also graves outside the fenced area, which are possibly graves of slaves who died on the plantation. Two Civil War soldiers, Burton Lemuel Mott and James I Johnson, in addition to Isabel and Abram Mott are buried here. Some surveys have called this the Henry Davis Cemetery.

The first AIGS survey was made by Shirley McCabe and Joan Johnson in 1995, and a 2012 survey was completed in May of 2012 by Jim Miller and Michael Toomey in association with Wanda Arnold, Jasper Griffin and Robbie Robinson of the West Nassau Genealogy Society.
