West Haven Cemetery

New Albany, Floyd County.

This is a work in progress and the list is very incomplete. I am guessing there are about 700 stones in this cemetery, but not everyone has a stone to mark the gravesite. If you have additional information on this cemetery or would like to take pictures to add this to the site, please contact me at S P Carpenter

This cemetery has been listed in the burial records in many different ways. It is an African American Cemetery that was established in 1877. There were other colored cemeteries. One was on Paoli Pike has been cleaned and is know now as "Freedomland". It has become a school project.

In one record, West Haven Cemetery was listed as "Apple Tree Garden". Others listed it as "Rest Haven", "West Street Cemetery", "West Union Cemetery", "Colored Cemetery".

Some other African American Cemeteries were: Dawson's Hollow, Ross Family Cemetery (2) - one has been moved; Bailey cemetery (location has not been found). There are some African Americans buried in the city cemetery, Fairview, as well as in the National Cemetery.
