Re: Locating loved ones and finding information on the history of African-Americans buried in Utoy Primitive Baptist Cemetery...
One of the aims of the Utoy Cemetery Association is to obtain as much documentation as possible about people buried on the site.
It is recognized that the remains of African-Americans are on the Northwest Quadrant of the Cemetery. Even after clearing this area few gravemarkers were found with names and other identification. Census and other records have been examined. However no clear picture has emerged about the possible number and names of African-Americans buried at the Cemetery. It will require more research and examination of records and other sources in more detail.
Thus far the names of four burials have been discovered with some identification. They are:
Mary Jackson, B. July 12th, 1872 D.
It would be most appreciated if anyone in the Campbellton Rd. area or elsewhere can provide any information or details of African-Americans buried at Utoy Cemetery.
People may wish to place flowers or other forms of remembrance on graves.
Thank you for the opportunity to comment.
