  ***The Pyle's Prairie Cemetery is a known Caucasian burial ground, however  Pyle family members and others who lived in that community did own slaves, and many slave owners considered their servants to be family members.  It was not unheard of to bury persons of color in family cemeteries.  It is also very possible that an unknown graveyard of persons of color lies adjacent to the marked cemetery.

*** The Jiba Cemetery ( Wilson 's Chapel) is a known Caucasian burial ground, however

those who lived in that community did own slaves, and many slave owners considered their servants to be family members.  It was not unheard of to bury persons of color in family cemeteries.  It is also very possible that an unknown graveyard of persons of color lies adjacent to the marked cemetery.

NOTE: This theory can be proven with the interment of T J Johnson, who was the son of slave , which was primarily a burial site of Caucasian persons.

NOTE concerning " EGYPT ":

Those burials marked "Buried Egypt" are probably interred at Ayers Chapel or at Flat Rock, however, some may be interred in an area between the Caro Cemetery and the Fox Cemetery , which was first known as the Slave Graveyard of the Fox & Spikes families.

 NOTE concerning "ELMO"

Those burials marked "buried Elmo" are probably interred at Fairview / Trinity Cemetery, however, some may be at Shady Grove, which was also known as Cobb Colored at one time, and as Frog Graveyard.

 NOTE concerning "BACHELOR"

Those burials marked "buried Bachelor" are most probably interred at what is now Mt. Hebron .

 NOTE concerning "died at Terrell". Burial of those persons were probably made at Old Oakwood Cemetery , however, it is known that some persons buried their slaves at what is now called the Terrell Pioneer cemetery.
