Tombstone Tuesday - Old Durham Road Pioneer Cemetery



Photos of Tombstones can be seen on the Genweb Cemetery Project site.

The four headstones were found in 1990.

The book Broken Shackles provides some background on this cemetery. The stones were on graves of  early Black settlers to the area.
