Other cemetaries in Belcher LA
There are other
cemetaries in Belcher, LA. Do you have any of these
cemetaries on your listing? I will be going to a family
reunion leaving June 29, 1999 for Shreveport LA. I will be
visiting St Paul Cemetery, Green Cemetery, and one that my
Grand-aunt (98 years old) will take us to. Where my
Great-grand parents are buried I don't know the name yet.
I will be happy to supply
you with whatever information I collect. I will be
visiting the hall of records in Shreveport, for marriage,
divorce, death, and birth records on my family. I have
collected data on my family since 1992; with photos,
retrospectives, biographies, etc. I have appx 2,500 people
in my database.
If you get this e-mail
before I leave home for Shreveport (leaving 2:00am),
please let me know what you need me to collect on the
cemetaries in Belcher LA.
PS I did recognize some
names of families (Bradfords) still living in Belcher.

Old Benevolent Cemetery in Nashville, TN
I am writing to let you
know about a 400 grave African American cemetery that is
being deeded out of existence. It was called the Old
Benevolent Cemetery and it's located in Nashville TN. It
was used from the early 1800's until the mid 1960's. A
prominent Nashville attorney and his brother (also an
attorney) have sold the property back and forth between
themselves,each time reducing the number of graves from
400 down to 1. They are doing this in order to build a
warehouse on the property. The local media will not do the
story because of who the owner is. The remains were dug up
and placed in cardboard moving boxes. I feel like people
need to be aware of what is happening here. This cemetery
would have been eligible for the historic register. It's
going to disappear unless something is done. If you all
can help or have any ideas about what I could do, please
let me know. Thank you,
2902 Brick Church Pk.

Common Burial Ground, Newport RI
I thought you might be
interested in one of the nation's oldest and largest
African American burial grounds. Located in historic
Newport, Rhode Island, the "God's Little Acre"
portion of the Common Burial Ground contains several
hundred markers of slave and free african and african
americans dating as far back as the late 17th century.
Most of the markers are between 1725 and 1799 and nearly
all were crafted by an African American stone-cutter names
Zingo Stevens. The markers are unique because of their age
and inscriptions. In some cases, the markers include a
depiction of an angel with African features in respecting
the african heritage of the deceased. For more info,
please do not hesitate to contact me at:

Alfred & Marion Anderson
I also have great
grandparents from Oxford,Pa. I have been trying to find
Alfred and Marion Anderson. Their daughters Minnie and
Lillie. I have not been able to find out where they are
buried. My father talked about a grandmother Wolfe. What
do you have on Wolfe's? If you come across Anderson I
would love to know. Alfred's first name may have been
Charles. He may have had a brother named James. They were
barber's by trade. Thanks a lot.

If you ever explore any
Jefferson County cemeteries, I might mentiona little known
African American one. I have searched online everywhere
for it, but no one seems to be aware of it. Unfortunately
it's the one I need.

Washington Hill Cemetery in Boughton, Arkansas (South
of Prescott, AK
There are many, many more
to be added to the list in this cemetery. A good contact
would be June Hamilton and Alfreddie Hart.
My Grandfather Willie
Phillips is not on the list, he died circa 1972, and was
born in circa 1890. Also my uncle Otis Hart, and many,
many more. Somebody must have a "plot plan"
because they are still burying people there.
There are people buried
here who were "Slaves", so we need to have some
of these places reserved as National Historic sites.
Also, I believe Shady
Grove Cemetery is located in Beirnes (Burns) Arkansas.
I have Great, Great and Great Grand Parents buried there.
Namely the Hunters and Harts. I don't know who to contact
reference this Cemetery, if it's the one in Beirnes. Some
of these people were also born Slaves. Thank you for
this heart rendering effort!

Macedonia Cemetery, Stephen, AR
I was recently in Stephen
Arkansas attending my Aunt's burial at the Macedonia
Cemetery in Stephen. This is one of two know all black
cemeteries that should be added to your list. Both these
cemeteries are off the beaten path but should be included.
I don't know the name of the second cemetery but my uncle
June Green and my grandfather Fulton Green are both buried
in this cemetery also located in Stephen.
Any assistance you can
provide in recognizing these cemeteries would mean a great
deal to me. Thanks.

Hatoff Cemetery, Dublin, Laurens County, GA
Hi, could you please tell
me if anyone is or has researched the Hatoff Cemetery in
Laurens County, Dublin, Georgia. I am very interested in
finding out about family members that were buried there. I
live on the West Coast which makes it impossible to locate
myself. Would appreciate any info you can give on this
matter. I was told that it may be considered a Historical
site now. Also, I was told it recently merged with a
Pearly Chapel and is now Friendship Baptist Church. Look
forward to your response. Thanks.

Dix Hill Cemetery, Haywood County, NC
I visited your website
after receiving an e-mail from an on-line friend. I think
the site is great. I loved going through the different
states, and connecting with our great history. How does
one go about getting a cemetary listed on this site? I
know of an incredible one in Haywood County, NC, my
birthplace. The name is Dix Hill Cemetary, and it is
perched along the sides and the top of a hill, surrounded
in all directions by mountains. It is a tremendously
peaceful spot, housing loads of Waynesville, North
Carolina's black evolution. Please let me know how to list

if you have any other listing on cemeteries located in and
around Calcasieu Parish. I am trying to find out some
information on someone that may have been buried at
Morning Star Baptist Church (Old River). This is in
Natchez, LA. From what i understand Weaver & Flora has
disappeared form the map. But I had some relatives living
there a long time ago. I believe travel between the

There is a cemetary
located in Clayton, Alabama, "Cedar Grove",
which was the burial site for African Americans residing
in that community. The land, as I understand, was donated
by my great grandfather, General (first name) Cole. If
anyone has any information on this site, I would

Lakeview Community was
established during the 1820's in a cypress swamp outside
of present day Carrier Mills, (Saline County-Southern
Illinois), near the Kentucky border. The residents
were/are farmers/coal miners. To this day it still in use
and is a 100% African American cemetery. I have family
buried there with tomb stones dating back to the middle
1800's and I believe church records should be available.
How would I go about
getting it listed on your web site?
