There is a local slave cemetery located on a hill behind a I-40 rest area . I informed the local preservation group , They were not very interested in it. Another one is 20 feet off a main city street that you wouldn't find because of the brush.

It would mean a great deal to me and my family if we could get close. Please excuse the friend request. Facebook is charging every a dollar for messages if we're not connected and I was hoping to bypass that.

I look forward to hearing from you soon and thank you in advance for your assistance. "

I have really enjoyed your report. You have given me the incentive to ride down and find some old cemeteries from my youth. Subscribed!

The last few days have made me realize the importance of from which we came.





" But she died where she wanted to die - with the memory of her mother so fresh on her mind that she spoke of her presence with her then and seemed to think her near. Instead there was a faithful colored friend, who had inherited the care of Miss Mary Duffee from her mother - Mary Points - a good old colored washer-woman who was a long time ago a part of Blount Spring. Miss Duffee's relatives paid for here services - but that young colored woman gave of herself and walked miles each day for years to make Miss Mary as comfortable as she could - and she did it until she was not more. Is not this service the kind that the true spirit demand and the reward will not be left to man alone."
