Cemetery notes and/or description:
This is a rather large (five acre) abandoned cemetery in Shreveport's Stoner Hill neighborhood, located in a gully-laced forested area between the C.E. Galloway Stoner Hill Elementary Lab School and the former Valencia School, now Caddo Parish Magnet High School. The property is likely owned by the Caddo Parish School Board. Dozens of markers are visible, though most are broken, toppled or entwined in vegetative growth or broken/bent fencing. In addition, scores of depressions in the hillsides indicate the presence of other, unmarked, graves. This is a dedicated black cemetery, though area residents familiar with it say there are other-race burials there as well. (This preceding description was for the benefit of genealogists.) At least two of the markers are military and at least three are Masonic.
