Cemetery notes and/or description:
This is a Black cemetery on the southern bank of the O'Hoopee River near Oak Park. This is a large cemetery, and there are many, many unmarked graves here. The cemetery is very old, but no one knows just when it was begun.

I was told by a great-aunt, Maggie Williamson, that white settlers started the cemetery, but I have no proof of that. If true, it most likely dates to the late 1700s or early 1800s. My uncle, Lemuel Williamson, told me that when Highway No. 1 was being paved, the construction company dug dirt from that area to use in building up the road and dug up bones.
