      Surveyed and photographed by Mitch Fraas in April 2009.

      In 1896 Anderson Leathers died after a long life and was buried a free man on his own land. Caty (or Katy, or Catharine) continued living into the early 1900s with her son William at her side. Out of 13 live births she had eight remaining children, now spread out around Durham, her daughters with new married names like Snipes, Hicks, Sims, and Geer.

      Though without a legible stone it's impossible to know, Anderson Leathers and his wife and perhaps a few other family members are most likely buried in the graveyard (there certainly seem to be other burial depressions on the site).

  1. Leathers, Anderson   (b. abt 1820 - d. abt 1896)
      • husband of Cathy Leathers (probably buried here)
  2. Leathers, Caty   (b. 1824 - d. aft 1900)
      • Wife of Anderson Leathers (probably buried here)
