Upton Cemetery
I contacted my 'cemetery nut' and here's what he said:
"One of our SGES members from central Florida is connected to the Upton family. She personally raised several of the buried stones and repaired the fence, etc. The Piney Grove Cemetery (black) now completely surrounds Upton (white). The theory is that the black were plantation workers, but when the old folks died off, the blacks stayed and kept on producing offspring. A ditch separated the original cemeteries, but it was closed off when more space was needed. Too bad. I have seen the entire cemetery under several inches of water. Not good." Hope this helps!

I did transfer the 4 people you mentioned. Please let me know if you want others of that family. I also may have a photo still in my camera of Wm/Blanch headstone that I haven't gotten to yet. Thank you for your interest. Karen

Thank you for taking this photo and your note about the cemetery. I am not related to any that are interred there that I know of. I will forward your info to some 'cemetery nuts' that I know and see if they can offer some help. This Jacksonville native who is now living in TX appreciates your time and your efforts. Best regards, Ann
