Cemetery is in fair condition. It is located on Earby G. Good farm. Numerous unmarked graves and fieldstones. St. Hebron Baptist Church is located on the corner of Rt. 602 (East Point Road) and Rt. 940 (Greenwood Road). The church is about 140 years old and is an active congregation. On December 11, 1936, C. C. Morris of Shenandoah, Virginia, recorded the following on this cemetery as given to him by F. E. Brown and Earl Wayre. "This is an old colored cemetery that goes back to the slavery times. There are quite a few old slaves buried here, but no inscriptions on stones. Some of the old slaves who were buried here before 1860 were Harvey Wayre and his wife, Evelyn Wayre; John Brown and wife, Sarah Brown; and Caroline Beck; also the Rev. John Wood, the colored missionary Baptist preacher."
