|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
The Barber Cemetery is a community cemetery located on Hwy. 157, Concord-Bainbridge Road, about 2 miles north of the crossroads of Fairbanks Ferry Road and Concord-Bainbridge Road in the community of Concord, Florida. It is about 1.5 miles south of the George-Florida state line. It is on the east side of Concord-Bainbridge Road. It is managed by a board of Trustees, one of whom is Mrs. Pace (Mary Peavy) Allen, Tallahassee, FL.
At one time, this cemetery had a fence separating the graves of white people and black people, but that has been taken down. The 1830 Gadsden Census records show Elias Whiddon, Sr., with two adults, three children, and two slaves, and there were probably a few other slaves on these early farms. The first black people buried there were slaves. In the past a lot of the black people called this "The Nunan Cemetery", probably based upon William Nunan who was buried there in 1873. It is not known when the cemetery became known as The Barber Cemetery. The Barbers were among the first white people buried there. This is the white section of the cemetery only. Was also once known as the Nunan Cemetery.
