Update to Edwin Ferebee Cemetery

The following information is recorded in the Camden County Cemeteries Volume II compiled by Gloria Twiddy Wesner. During the week of February 9, 2009 the resting ground of the Ferebee family was cleaned up and additional tombstones were located. With Gloria’s permission I am publishing the information in her book and the names on the additional stones found.
