|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
An African-American cemetery was located in the Atoka community in the early 1900s. Some of the oldest residents in Boyle County remember a church and cemetery near the corner of present-day US-150 and the Salt River Road, but nothing apparently remains of either the church or the cemetery. The church that is located nearby, Salt River Baptist, is a different congregation from the Atoka one.
This cemetery is located at the end of present-day Old Schoolhouse Road, in the Needmore community. There was a church on the west side of the crest of the hill, and a school just to the north of the church.
