Other cemetaries in Belcher LA
There are other cemetaries in Belcher,
LA. Do you have any of these cemetaries on your listing? I will be going
to a family reunion leaving June 29, 1999 for Shreveport LA. I will be
visiting St Paul Cemetery, Green Cemetery, and one that my Grand-aunt (98
years old) will take us to. Where my Great-grand parents are buried I
don't know the name yet.
I will be happy to supply you with
whatever information I collect. I will be visiting the hall of records in
Shreveport, for marriage, divorce, death, and birth records on my family.
I have collected data on my family since 1992; with photos,
retrospectives, biographies, etc. I have appx 2,500 people in my database.
If you get this e-mail before I leave
home for Shreveport (leaving 2:00am), please let me know what you need me
to collect on the cemetaries in Belcher LA.
PS I did recognize some names of families
(Bradfords) still living in Belcher.

Old Benevolent Cemetery in Nashville, TN
I am writing to let you know about a 400
grave African American cemetery that is being deeded out of existence. It
was called the Old Benevolent Cemetery and it's located in Nashville TN.
It was used from the early 1800's until the mid 1960's. A prominent
Nashville attorney and his brother (also an attorney) have sold the
property back and forth between themselves,each time reducing the number
of graves from 400 down to 1. They are doing this in order to build a
warehouse on the property. The local media will not do the story because
of who the owner is. The remains were dug up and placed in cardboard
moving boxes. I feel like people need to be aware of what is happening
here. This cemetery would have been eligible for the historic register.
It's going to disappear unless something is done. If you all can help or
have any ideas about what I could do, please let me know. Thank you,
2902 Brick Church Pk.

Common Burial Ground, Newport RI
I thought you might be interested in one
of the nation's oldest and largest African American burial grounds.
Located in historic Newport, Rhode Island, the "God's Little
Acre" portion of the Common Burial Ground contains several hundred
markers of slave and free african and african americans dating as far back
as the late 17th century. Most of the markers are between 1725 and 1799
and nearly all were crafted by an African American stone-cutter names
Zingo Stevens. The markers are unique because of their age and
inscriptions. In some cases, the markers include a depiction of an angel
with African features in respecting the african heritage of the deceased.

Alfred & Marion Anderson
I also have great grandparents from
Oxford,Pa. I have been trying to find Alfred and Marion Anderson. Their
daughters Minnie and Lillie. I have not been able to find out where they
are buried. My father talked about a grandmother Wolfe. What do you have
on Wolfe's? If you come across Anderson I would love to know. Alfred's
first name may have been Charles. He may have had a brother named James.
They were barber's by trade. Thanks a lot.

Washington Hill Cemetery in Boughton, Arkansas (South of Prescott, AK
There are many, many more to be added to
the list in this cemetery. A good contact would be June Hamilton and
My Grandfather Willie Phillips is not on
the list, he died circa 1972, and was born in circa 1890. Also my uncle
Otis Hart, and many, many more. Somebody must have a "plot plan"
because they are still burying people there.
There are people buried here who were
"Slaves", so we need to have some of these places reserved as
National Historic sites.
Also, I believe Shady Grove Cemetery
is located in Beirnes (Burns) Arkansas. I have Great, Great and Great
Grand Parents buried there. Namely the Hunters and Harts. I don't know who
to contact reference this Cemetery, if it's the one in Beirnes. Some of
these people were also born Slaves. Thank you for this heart rendering

grandfather Fulton Green are both buried in this cemetery also located in
Any assistance you can provide in
recognizing these cemeteries would mean a great deal to me. Thanks.

Hatoff Cemetery, Dublin, Laurens County, GA
Hi, could you please tell me if anyone is
or has researched the Hatoff Cemetery in Laurens County, Dublin, Georgia.
I am very interested in finding out about family members that were buried
there. I live on the West Coast which makes it impossible to locate
myself. Would appreciate any info you can give on this matter. I was told
that it may be considered a Historical site now. Also, I was told it
recently merged with a Pearly Chapel and is now Friendship Baptist Church.
Look forward to your response. Thanks.

Dix Hill Cemetery, Haywood County, NC
I visited your website after receiving an
e-mail from an on-line friend. I think the site is great. I loved going
through the different states, and connecting with our great history. How
does one go about getting a cemetary listed on this site? I know of an
incredible one in Haywood County, NC, my birthplace. The name is Dix Hill
Cemetary, and it is perched along the sides and the top of a hill,
surrounded in all directions by mountains. It is a tremendously peaceful
spot, housing loads of Waynesville, North Carolina's black evolution.
Please let me know how to list it. Thanks.
