      Miscellaneous information: In 1992, Tommy Edwards reported this cemetery to CCHA. In June 2007 he led CCHA volunteers to the location. This is believed to be a cemetery of the slaves of S.S. Edwards. There are about a dozen fieldstone markers. The site was visited in 1992 by Wade Hadley, who noted scattered stones not in place and one stone with the date 1875 or 1895 and the letters "RAE" scratched on it.
