    Text The Old Cannon Creek ARP Church Cemetery is not the same cemetery as the Maffett-Wicker Cemetery located near St. Phillip's Church - and for all practical purposes, lost in the woods.  

    Robert Maffett Sr, Robert Jr., their wives, and five of their children (Lt. Daniel S. Maffett, Sarah Ann Maffett, John C. Maffett, Samuel B. Maffett, and Leonora E. Maffett), as well as William Maffett, son of Samuel and Jane Cannon Maffett, are buried at Cannon Creek.

    I have pictures to prove this. Unfortunately, I have not been able to find the Maffett-Wicker Cemetery, but Summers in his Newberry County volume and the folks from the Historical Society there list James Maffett (1795-1880), his first wife Rebecca Cannon Maffett, their son H.B. Maffett, and children of James and his second Wife Elmina Reid Maffett (Frances Elizabeth (Betty) Maffett, and an infant son), as well as Robert Clayton Maffett's first wife, Lavinia Gallman Maffett, and their children (Rebecca Florence Maffett and Ida Maffett - not to be confused with Ida C. Maffett Hunter) as being buried there. I have not included dates for the Robert Maffett Sr family assuming that you have those.

    If I can help further, I'd be delighted. I'm still searching for information about Robert Sr's brothers who supposedly came to Newberry County with Robert and Samuel who married Jane Cannon.  I wish I hadn't waited until after my mother died to start on this.  She had so much information about the Maffetts from her mother who was George Clinton Maffett's younger daughter and, therefore, a direct descendant of Robert Maffett Sr.
