***Requested grave photo*** "This is a small cemetery. I searched the entire area and could not find this
ladies grave. I talked to a man at the church that has been a member his whole life and he has never heard of Ms. McKnight. This may be the wrong church as there are several Mt. Olive CME churches in this area." 11/15/13
If anyone knows the correct cemetery, please let me know. Thank you.
