|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Directions: Turn on Hwy 1004 in Buna at the red-light intersection of Hwy 96 North and Hwy 96 South, go approx 7.7 miles and turn left on County Rd. 700; go approx 1.8 miles and the cemetery will be on top of the hill on the right side of the road, next to the Withers Cemetery
Many people may remember this community by the name it was called for over 100 years. This small community was known as Cairo Springs.
According to cemetery records on file in the Buna Public library the following persons were born into slavery,
Ann Withers Bates and David Crockett.
According to the recorded dates on other markers it is possible that there may be other persons who were also born into slavery, who may have stayed in the area as freed slaves, raised their families and had productive lives
There is no indication of these people being slaves on the markers, so it may only be folklore.
