Cemetery notes and/or description:
The cemetery known today as Hillcrest Cemetery includes a large expanse of open area bound by Adams, Stafford, and Carr streets.

This cemetery is known by various names including: Methodist Cemetery, North Monroe Colored Cemetery, New Town Cemetery, Monroe Black Cemetery, People's Cemetery, Monroe City Cemetery or just "Monroe".

It is not exactly clear when Hillcrest City Cemetery - the one located across from the original burial grounds was begun, but the general time frame would be about 1945 -1946 judging from Dr. John Massey's Obituary found on page 1 of the May 16, 1946 Monroe Enquirer which notes..."burial was in New Colored Cemetery".
