Pilgrims Rest Chamber
They look good, thanks for posting them. I am white and know little of the 'old' black society. There is something that is driving me crazy about one stone in the Oak Ridge, Davis, Murray, OK, cemetery that I sent to you. On one stone of Seallie Anderson, the epitaph reads, "Pilgrams Rest Chamber". I have asked every black person I know what this means and nobody knows. I searched the internet and not a single referance. Have you ever heard of the Pilgrims Rest Chamber and if so what was it.
