Cemetery notes and/or description:
Thomas H Nelms (1816-1888) moved several families and their slaves to Houston County from Georgia to the Fodice Community. In 1869, after the Civil War, he helped freed slaves set up farms in the area. The first to settle here was John O'Neill (1830-1915). The Fodice Community grew to include a cotton gin, grist mill, general store and post office. Citizens organized a Colored Methodist Episcopal Church in 1885. Classes were held in the sanctuary until a separate schoolhouse was built in 1900. It was later consolidated with the Pennington School District. The Post Office Closed in 1966.
