121    CAMERON GROVE

      Located in Mangum Township off Old Oxford Highway. This is on Southern Research property. Come up International Drive, just past the access road to the power distribution station on your left is a small gravel road, follow that until, at the top of the hill, there is a short track joining at 90 degrees from the left. Turn up that and stop. The cemetery is in the forest on your right.

      Canvassed by Jean Anderson (1978). This cemetery was the primary burial ground for the approximate 1000 slaves of the Cameron Plantation. The cemetery is located near what is believed to be foundation remnants of Cameron Grove, the church serving the slave community. The many marked graves, at least 100, add significance for further research and examination. The cemetery is on what was once the Little River Plantation of a succession of Cameron owners: Duncan, Paul, Bennehan.

      Visited and photographed by Allen Dew on September 13, 2007. The cemetery is in a deplorable condition. Many trees have fallen down and most of the gravemarkers are damaged or missing.
