Norwich  Cemetery

Also called Crist or Wiggs, this was located near a church school.  It is in the middle of a field, just east of Spartanburg. West of county road 750 East, between 700 and 800 South.  In 1865 the farm was owned by John Randel, a black man, and at least eight members of his family are here, as well as many of the early pioneers.
It has been fenced by the Township Trustee.
