This cemetery is located at 646 Bunker Hill Road in New
been very heavily vandalized, and most tombstones are in fragments no
bigger than your fist. I have been covering the area with a fine-tooth
comb, hoping to eventually find all the shattered fragments and reconstruct
the tombstones. The cemetery covers a wooded half-acre lot, with the front
half apparently the "white" part of the cemetery, with what are probably
slave burials in the back. There are many field stones still in place in
this part of the cemetery.
