Cemetery Read and Pictures Taken by Beverly Craig

September 2001

There are many stones in the back of the cemetery that are gone, from age & weather. The groundskeeper of the cemetery has said the left backside of the cemetery was where slaves were buried. The stones are all gone, and no record of them. His father was grounds keeper before him.
