A little slave girl owed by the George Sigler family was spreading laundry to dry on the bushes and was killed by a black bear early one morning in 1856. Her screams echoed through the little creek valley. Men from all around the area raced vainly trying to help her. She was buried just across the fence from the community cemetery, making hers the first grave in the all black Senterwood Cemetery.~❤~

============================
Free at last, free at last
I thank God I'm free at last
Free at last, free at last
I thank God I'm free at last

Way down yonder in the graveyard walk
I thank God I'm free at last
Me and my Jesus going to meet and talk
I thank God I'm free at last

On my knees when the light pass'd by
I thank God I'm free at last
Tho't my soul would rise and fly
I thank God I'm free at last

Some of these mornings, bright and fair
I thank God I'm free at last
Goin' meet King Jesus in the air
I thank God I'm free at last
