1. Nearby unmarked 'slave' cemetary?
I've seen that marker since the early 60's (as a child) and going to the cemetary itself. My grandparents William and Ola Rebecca Morris and my aunt/uncle Lillian Morris Hall and Coy Hall are buried there. The cemetary is very historical and interesting.
A question... is there an unmarked 'slave' cemetary behind the other one?
Thanks for the info.
