Tyger Baptist Church, Tigerville, S.C.
This is one of the most amazing churchyards in Greenville County. You may start on one side of the knoll with men who served in the Continental Line and proceed up to the men of the C.S.A. and down to the men of Vietnam. It is a microcosm of the price that was paid to become what we are today. J.M. Evins, who is buried here, may or may not be the James Evans of the Sixteenth. G.J. Southern is probably the J.G. Southern of the Sixteenth and a second W.P. Bates is buried in the Bates Family Cemetery. There is no question concerning Lt. Turner. Other possible members of the Sixteenth include J. Barton.
