Cemetery notes and/or description:
James Twyman, a wealthy Virginia plantation owner. Upon his death Twyman freed all his slaves except the servants who he deemed too elderly to make the journey, and it was willed that they would be taken care of until their death. The book called The Promise Land by Earl Pratt, an Ohio lawyer from Ironton, Ohio, documented James Twyman's plantation, the 37 freed slaves, and their journey to Ohio. A monument stands at the gates of the Burlington (Ohio) 37 Cemetery, where these former slaves are buried.
