Cemetery notes and/or description:
From October 24, 1855 through December 17, 1877, the Parrish records of St. Wilfrid's Episcopal Church state that people of color, both slave and free, were buried in St. Wilfrid's Cemetery. Located behind the church, the historic cemetery contains, among others, 77 graves of soldiers who died at the Breckenridge Hospital on Howard College campus (now the Marion Military Institute campus). The soldiers were originally buried behind the campus. The Ladies Memorial Association moved them to this site in 1872. Also buried here is William M. Brooks, President of the Alabama Secession Convention of 1861. The cemetery was originally established in 1847.
