This graphic file is large for detail, so it may take some time to load. Notation for the "Shell-Hatton Cemetery" is near the center of the darker shaded left (west) section. This cemetery is often also referred to as the Shell-Abrams Cemetery or the Shell Family Cemetery. It is the burial place for some of the family of Allen S. Shell, his father William Shell (m. Amy), and perhaps for the patriarch of the Shells migrating from the Pigeonroost Creek area, William Shell (b. c. 1728). See also George Carter Abrams' transcription of this cemetery from Newberry County, South Carolina Cemeteries.

Notations for estates of two Dr. Pettus Cheeks may be found in the lighter shaded right (east) section south of Orange Hall Plantation. It may be one of these for whom Pettus Wales Chick Shell was named. Cheek family researchers confirm that the surname was spelled both ways by this family.
