This is not actually a separate cemetery but was created to be able to print all black burials in the county. From the founding of this cemetery in 1839, it has been used by both races and is to this time. It is under one fence but burials have been separate for this time period with all black burials east of the center dividing road. Maintenance is the same for both sides of the cemetery and both have old as well as new markers. The oldest marked black burial is that of Nina Breedlove who died on 1 Jul 1910. This was surveyed by Lawrence and Sue Dale on a wet 2 Dec 1998. This cemetery was revisited on 20 Jan 2003 to take the GPS Coordinates.
