Old Mill Graveyard

Located in Thomaston, west of intersection of
Peerless Rd. and Edgewood Ave., behind Thomaston
Mills Finishing Division. Copied by David E.
Paterson, September 3, 1996 This cemetery contains
many unmarked graves. No attempt has been made to
account for them. Since the cemetery is not laid
out in discernable rows, I started from the road,
copying the north half of the cemetary until I
reached the mill fence that marks the western
boundary. From there, I worked south, then east
back to the road. Many markers are damaged or
buried. If I could uncover obscured inscriptions
without an unseemly amount of excavation, I did so.

The listing below reproduces the inscriptions of all
grave markers I could locate. Dates are shown in
MM/DD/YYYY format, but otherwise all inscriptions
are transcribed verbatim. Terms of address, such as
"Rev." "Mr." and "Mrs." that are part of the
inscription are included with first names, while
"Jr." "Sr." and the like are included with the last
names. An asterisk (*) in the last column indicates
that the marker is inscribed with the name or
initials of the Sons & Daughters of Mary & Martha
Society.

The Daughters of Mary and Martha Society was a
mutual-aid society started by the ladies of St.
Mary AME Church in the 1880s. It was primarily to
provide funds for decent burial for members - hence
the tombstone inscriptions. The society was later
expanded to include men, so became the Sons and
Daughters of Mary & Martha Society. It later opened
membership to persons outside the AME church, and
expanded its charitable missions. Today, it owns
and operates several houses in Thomaston that it
rents to low-income persons, and runs a youth
program.
