In Response To: Re: Slave cemetaries ()
I just thought I would tell you that my family is trying to find out the same thing. When my dad was litte he was showed a group of graves on some private property outside our land. His grandfather said that they were old slave graves and that not many people knew they were there. Now nearly 40 years later, the woman who owns the land is trying to have a sub-division built over the graves. We are trying to stop this but there is nothing we can do at this time. Time is running short so if anyone knows how to help, just contact me at my e-mail address. I hope you are able to perserve the graves that you found.
