Slave Cemetery

I met Mr. and Mrs. Duncan Charlton who own the property that the Coates Cemetery and the Slave Cemetery are on.  They have allowed me to do some research using the dowsing technique to see how many graves I could find in the area where the slaves were buried.  This area is near and in some heavy brush, so I could not complete the area to the west.  Attached are copies of the work I've done so far on marking the graves in the Slave Cemetery.  So far I've found 27 graves, some in rows and others nearby. Looking for relatives of those buried here. KENNETH FELPS
