African American Cemeteries Forum
There's a little African-American cemetary that is full across from Laurel Grove in Savannah that evidently is so covered up, hardly any know it is there. It has people from the 40's and earlier that evidently were too poor to be in Laurel Grove. Do you know anything about this one? I have searched for a John and Julia Martin that I believe are buried there. There is no phone numbers listed for any such cemetary. So far, the ones listed on the Internet or Yellow pages do not have any cemetary listed there. I have heard the name once or twice, but for the life of me can't remember it, nor find where I wrote it down. Does anything like this sound familiar to you?
