      There are only three inscribed stones in this gravesite however this was a very early and large cemetery before a portion of it was destroyed by the occupation of military personal during WW-II. It contained more than 100 gravesites with over 25 slave graves on the eastern side. In 2003 the Granville Co cemetery preservation committee cleaned it and placed 63 PVC crosses to mark the visible graves. Today vandals have broken or removed many of these markers.
