      This slave cemetery is associated with the Henry Bray family [G87.1]. The slave cemetery is about 100 yards due south of the Bray family cemetery. Several people have mentioned the existence of this cemetery. In December 2011, Jane and Alan Mann were shown the site by the Cobels, who were current residents on the property. The Manns took four photos, at least one of which shows some inscription on the grave marker, although it is not entirely legible. CCHA hopes to return to this site to inventory the gravemarkers.
