Old Pine Barren Cemetery

This small cemetery is located in the woods in Pine Barren, east of US 29 about one-half mile north of Little Pine Barren Cemetery. A local resident, Billy Allen, showed it to members of the West Florida Genealogical Society (WFGS) and said that he had been told it was a black cemetery. Only 7 stones were found plus a few unmarked depressions when WFGS surveyed the cemetery in the 1980’s. Most headstones were hand carved into homemade stones.

Directions: Drive north on US29 past Cantonment to Pine Barren at Cotton Lake Road. Turn right on Cotton Lake Road and drive about one mile. The cemetery is off the road on the left past a small branch. Contact Michael Hitchcock, Champion International Corp.

Please send corrections or additions to Evan Strohl, WFGS Chairman, Cemetery Committee, or the Webmaster.
