ST. PAULS BAPTIST CHURCH CEMETERY
Tuscumbia, Colbert County, AL
By Gloria Winston Al-Sarag, JazzyG4202@aol.com
Below is a partial listing of those buried in St. Paul's Cemetery, located on the grounds of St. Pauls Baptist Church, Tuscumbia, Colbert County, AL. The church was founded 1891 (Rev. N.C. COLEMAN, Pastor at the time). It was remodeled Dec 1984 (Rev. Samuel WILLIAMS). The current Pastor is Rev. Keaton STEWART. The church is located approx. one mile from Belle Mont Mansion in Tuscumbia. There are several unmarked graves that are attended to, and filled in as they sink, by church members.
There are many from the BELUE family also buried there. Time constraints did not permit me to get the names of all buired there, but it is a goal to do so. The area was commonly referred to, after the Civil War, as BELUETOWN.
Thanks to local WINSTON/BELUE descendents: Sallie HARRIS, Walter BROWN, Georgia Beatrice CARTER, and Mattie McCOO for their guidance.
