Inscription.  

Oral tradition says that this cemetery began as a slave cemetery on the plantation of Tennessee native Churchill Fulshear. Many early burials are unmarked, and the oldest headstone is that of Rebecca Scott in 1915. In addition, midwives, a chef, a horse trainer and cowboy, the first colored school house founders, businessmen and women, two local entrepreneurs, religious leaders, and veterans from WWI to the Vietnam War are buried here. A rural landscape of rolling hills and trees surrounds a variety of headstones made of Fieldstone, Granite, Marble, Steel, Homemade Concrete, Wood and Resin. The cemetery is evidence of the rich heritage of the people in this area.
