This African American cemetery is in a wooded area on the other side of planted fields; you'll need a guide to get there. Going north on Ellwood Road, inquire at the first farm on the right after you cross Goodings Ford Road, it's probably two miles back in the woods from there. There were probably more people buried there, there are a couple of filial tops broken off, a couple bases, and one stone too heavy to turn over. Both stones are fallen. The graveyard area is planted in day lilies, and there are wild berry, rose and thorn bushes grown up naturally in the area. We found only 3 names on stones and another three names in the Death Registers.
