Johnson Chapel Cemetery
Inside a heavily wooded area, just past
Johnson Chapel Missionary Baptist Church
off Hwy 102, 3.4 miles north of intersection of Hwy 79.
We have been told that this was a black cemetery with many graves of slaves.
Parts of this cemetery are extremely old.  Most of this cemetery has been
destroyed by water, fallen trees and time.  Most of the graves have
sunk in to the ground as much as several feet.  There are many small
stones with no inscriptions, graves marked by rocks and a number of
large stones that have been crushed.  We also found a number of funeral
home markers that were also illegible.
