Summerville Hospital tract and Oak Grove UDC

We are trying to find as much information as possible on the Summerville Confederate Cemetery named Oak Grove. Our chapter C. I. Walker # 190 owned the land at the time and it is assumed that it is on a tract behind Westvaco. We ahve walked the area and there are two very old oak trees that have large depressions under them. I have a list of SC soldiers who might have been buried there, this is total speculation. I am trying to contact any family member of these soldiers to find out if they may have more information on the cemetery. This is the list that was in the Broken Fortunes:
