Possible African American cemetary
There is a small neglected cemetary hidden by trees, behind a tobacco barn on one of the trails in my community in Chatham County. The stones are small and triangular with no writing. It took several minutes for me to realize that I was seeing a cemetary. Because of its placement behind the tobacco barn, and non-descript nature of the stones, I'm wondering if this could be the final resting place for black agricultural workers. I don't think the barn is old enough to have existed during slavery. Is there someone in NC to talk with about this site? I worry about its role in future development of this land.
