The Breeler Field Cemetery

After taking a photograph of every.single.marker in Solomons Cemetery, we got back in the van and drove further along the lane to find Breeler Field.

Breeler Field is big, so only a few photos were taken for Reader Maureen, who is researching the Beckett family.

And because Mama Florrie’s father was a Gant, I took a photo of the only Gant I saw, not knowing if/how this Gant fits into Mama Florrie’s family.

That’s Breeler Field. Easy to find, and full of stories.

      Hello Cameron, and welcome to the blog!
      I don’t know your Lawtons, but the Lawton line in Robertville came out of the Charleston area from William Lawton the progenitor. I’ll see what I can find out

    My family is buried in Breeler Field. Williams, Wilson, Grants. A few of those Beckett headstones you shared some were relatives

        Howdy…I am familiar with the history of the area around Breeler Field Cemetery and whom it is named for. My GGGG grandfather Abraham Breler and his family owned property all throughout the area from 1755 to around 1825 or so. The Breler name morphed into Breland just prior to 1800. All of the original Breler/Brelands in the area sold out and moved either to Mississippi or farther north into South Carolina in Barnwell and Colleton counties. Hope this helps…
