|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
This is a black cemetery located inside Eternal Rest Cemetery, at the far Southeast (left) corner. It was originally started at the far Northeast (right) corner of the cemetery near the entrance, but when State Hwy 77 was built, the graves were relocated. There are still some markers at the NE corner, and these few are noted as being near the cemetery entrance, meaning the entrance to Eternal Rest Cemetery.
This transcription was done February 14, 2007. Special thanks to Mr. James Curtis, retired U.S. Army, World War II, who was visiting his wife's grave, and decided to help me by removing dried mud away from many of the headstones. We braved the fire ants together, and his company was most enjoyable.
Of the 120 photographed graves, 21 are occupied by veterans of World War I, World War II, Korea, and Vietnam.
There were also many gravesites without headstones.
