Recent research has shown that eighteenth century forts in Georgia often have cemetery located nearby. This was the case at Fort Argyle, Fort Mount Pleasant, and New Ebenezer. Soldier's graves are also mentioned in comtemporary accounts of forts at Beards Bluff, Carney's Cowpen and others in coastal Georgia (Elliott and Elliott 1991, Elliott 1991, 1997) The grounds of SUnbury and its adjacent fortifications almost certainly contain Revolutionary War dead. The burials probably include soldiers who died from sickness while in garrison, such as men of the 8th Virginia Continental Regiment; soldiers killed in the struggle for Fort Morris, such as British Captain McDonald, the enslaved African=American Bristol Munro Jr; and opther unnown American, British, and Loyalist Soldiers. No human graves were locate din the present study and those that may exist await future discovery. THe Present GPR survey elimainater several areas for consideration as possible grave sites
