[SC] Mt Nebo Cemetary

I know this cemetary was the 'colored cemetary.' Many of my ancestors are buried there. I am trying to find out what are the names of churches that they may have been members of in the Johnston/Edgefield area. All the named ancestors here died before 1930.....
Harriet Vance Pinkney
Henry Pinkney Pacia Vance
Elbert Vance
Annie Butler Vance
Adelaide Teague Vance
Francis Vance Walker
Beckie Vance

I have no idea what denomination they could have been, so any church would be possible. I noticed LOTT WALKER was the mortician on the death certificates. According to a newsletter, sent to pd SC Genealogy Society members, the article said this was the only mortician who would willingly prepare burial for black people.
Can any one tell me what churches may be the ones, they attended and if possible post a picture of the present day cemetary. I found the map site but no present day pictures.
