Baldwin County's Revolutionary War Veteran:
A short distance from Blakeley, remote from all signs of travel or habitation, at the summit of a long grassy slope heavily shaded by swaying pines through which the sunlight flickers, is Saluda Hill Cemeteryjust one enclosed family burial place with a few scattered graves around it, but of immense historic interest, for here lies buried a Revolutionary soldier, the only one so far as known in Baldwin County. The grave is bricked up about two feet, and the stone that marks the spot and is remarkably well preserved bears the following inscription: Sacred to the memory of Zechariah Godbold a native of Marion District, S.C. who departed this life July 13th, 1832, aged 69 years, 3 months and 10 days. At an early age he joined the ranks of Genl Marion in that eventful struggle which was over Independence. This stone is erected by his widow and son in testimony of their esteem for a kind husband, indulgent Father and generous friend.
