In 1956 Mrs. Harris sold this 98 acre tract to Ed and Frances Blackley, who were the owners in 1987. Elwood Harris always thought it was the old 'Link' slave cemetery. Other family members thought it was an Indian cemetery, since many arrowheads were found in the vicinity during the years it was owned by Andrew Harris. It is Said that Mr. Will Rhew, an adjoining landowner, always referred to this cemetery as a 'community slave cemetery.'
