|Karen||RE: Matilda Jones Mountain View|
Hi Stacey, I hope this will help. From what I have from the actual cemetery records, they being poorly kept, are Matilda d: 5-28-1900. She is buried beside a M J Jones that has no marker. I am assuming this is probably Matthew. I found a death certificate for a Matthew Jones b: 1836 d: 4-26-1919 but all that is mentioned is burial in Buchanan. Since Mt View was the popular burial ground for African Americans in Buchanan at that time period, I am pretty sure he is here also. There is also a couple of children listed for Matilda and Matthew: Charles 1857-1895 and Mollie 1859-1886 that are buried here.

|Riann||Walter Robinson in Sewickley|
Thank you for the very interesting information on Walter, I have included it in his bio. I would be surprised if they turned out to be a free black family. I assumed his parents were born into slavery because I have found others in this cemetery, who worked in the area, whose parents were born into slavery. Sewickley was an opportunity area for employing blacks, as servants and laborers, in the many wealthy, large estates in the area (and of course you get into the argument of how far from slavery, socially, were these positions?) but those who made it to freedom and found jobs in this area often communicated the availability of jobs via the grapevine to friends and family, so you find a decent number of colored families lived in this area who were descended from parents or grandparents born into slavery in the South. If you would like transfer of any of the Robinson memorials, let me know, if not, I will gladly add any further info you find. I was trying to photograph all the remaining readable stones in this section, as many have noticeably deteriorated in the last few years. I came to the conclusion that this Section C seemed to have been, at least for a while, an unofficial area for the burials of children - there are a lot of baby graves in it - AND also for the burial of many of the black servants, and their families, who worked at the area estates, so I tried to designate the ethnicity on the memorial when I find it. With so many common names, I hope it helps locate family. Where Walter and the Robinsons are buried looks down over to the recently placed Tuskogee Airmen Memorial.
