|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Ira Bradford Dement, Sr. founded the Dement Cemetery. When he deeded the land to the cemetery he stated..."where apart of my family lie."
There are several unmarked graves in this cemetery and there is supposidly a slave section.
Years ago (1940's) some colored people were caught throwing stones into a well. The only marked grave now is that of Ira's son, D. Clinton Dement.
When I first visited the Cemetery in 2004 or 2005 I located the well. I am still planning on going back and cleaning the cemetery up and hopefully search for missing stones in the well. The cemetery is located in the Richland community east of Point in the woods.
