Black History in Sebastian Co.


DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY INFORMATION ABOUT THIS?
Mt Harmony Cemetery likely has black women and children buried there but no black men. Black men were buried in a Black Cem up behind the ridge the church is on, up on Ruell Hollands land. There was also a black family cem at the bottom of what is now Greenwood lake.
