[AL] Lincoln Cemetery Montgomery Alabama
I am searching for a transcript of those interred in Lincoln Cemetery in Montgomery, Alabama. It is my understanding that the cemetery was sold or is no longer active. Someone told me recently that the Montgomery mayor has gone on record saying it is a disgrace that the cemetery has fallen into disrepair as it is one of the oldest African-American Cemeteries around.
We will be visiting the cemetery in the next week, traveling from Illinois to Alabama for the first time. We would very much like to locate the resting place for Charles Barnes (Charly Barns) b. 1840-ish in SC and died 1930-ish in Montgomery, Alabama. All we know is that he is buried in Lincoln Cemetery in Montgomery.
William Barnes, Charles' son and our grandfather, is also buried in Lincoln Cemetery. Does anyone know how we can find any information about Lincoln Cemetery in Montgomery, Alabama?
