Our last stop on St.Simons Island was Christ Episcopal Church. I knew of this church because of the trilogy of historical fiction books written by Eugenia Price, which I read many years ago and recently re-read because I knew that we would be touring St.Simons Island. The island is the primary location where the events of the novels took place. James Gould, the main character in Price's book Lighthouse, built the first lighthouse on the island, and also owned a cotton plantation there. The second son, Horace, is featured in the book New Moon Rising. He worked for awhile in Savannah, but returned and worked on his father's plantation until the Union Army took the plantation from him during the Civil War. There are still descendants of this family on the island today. Below is a picture of the Gould family plot which is located in the cemetery at Christ Church. The oldest gravestone discovered in the cemetery dates from 1803.
