Whitfield, Sumter County, Alabama

Surveyed by Shirley Reeder

Black Bluff Church was founded in 1866 with Caroline Abrams as their first preacher. There are two cemeteries connected with this church located in Whitfield, Alabama. One cemetery where my father is interred is located approximately 2 miles "down the road" from the church. The older cemetery is located approximately 100 yards behind the church. This cemetery is still in use and I recorded these names in that cemetery. While there are approximately 40 graves there, these were the only grave sites with markers.
