This was listed as a "W & N" (white and negro) cemetery in "Talladega County, Alabama Tombstone Inscriptions of All Known Cemeteries 1700's to 1987", Vol. II, c. 1990 by Joseph W. and Francis S. Upchurch, The Gregath Co., Cullman, Alabama. It is adjacent to and downhill from New Lebanon Presbyterian Church Cemetery (aka "Silver Run Cemetery"). There were approximately ninety-five (95) marked graves here in 1984.
The Veterans Affairs (VA) "Application For Headstone" for Sam Bagley reflects this cemetery was known as "Lebanon" in 1932. An "Application for Headstone" for Jefferson J. Sims from 1936 reflects the adjacent cemetery was known as "New Lebanon".
The earliest marked interment, 1892, is that of infant Bagley. The earliest marble stone, 1915, is from a chamber of The Mosaic Templars of America (MTA). The MTA was an African American fraternal organization in Little Rock, Arkansas, which provided marble headstones for deceased members in 26 states during the period 1914 through 1931.
