On March 9, 1736 his brother Charles records setting foot on St Simons Island:
“About 3:30 in the afternoon I first set foot on St. Simons Island and immediately my spirits revived.”
A memorial garden commemorates his trip.
On March 14, 1736 Charles preached under the Wesley Oak:
I preached with boldness, on singleness of intention, to about twenty people, among whom was Mr. Oglethorpe. Soon after, as he was in M. H.’s hut, a bullet (through the carelessness of one of the people, who were exercising today) flew through the wall, close by him.
The tree was reported to be made into a cross that is now in the Christ Church (Episcopal) nearby.
