Cemetery notes and/or description:
Cemetery is located within the gates of the St. John Resurrection Memorial Garden. The cemetery was originally designated a government cemetery for Negro soldiers, veterans and their immediate family members. However, after 1940, a local farmer began using it as farmland and disposed of more than 30 grave markers by throwing them into the creek! The land was eventually purchased by C.W. Haynes & Company, who in 1997 donated 2 acres of the land to St. John Baptist Church. The church has restored the land to a cemetery and put the remaining markers into a small, fenced area as a memorial to the original cemetery.
