This African-American cemetery is located in the woods about 1.5 miles northeast of New Hope Baptist Church No. 2 on property owned by Cameron Dodson. Access is by a gated logging road off County Rd. No. 7. Cemetery is almost impossible to find without a guide. A white cemetery joins this cemetery. A survey of this cemetery by Mrs. Gladys L. Williams in January, 1970. I visited the cemetery in February, 2010, but could not find many of the graves listed in the 1970 survey. Cemetery is very brushy. The 1970 survey reported 23 unmarked graves. The name for this cemetery comes from the 1970 survey. I did not see any boundary marking the division between the white and African-American graves.
