AKA Ward's Chapel
An early and still active black cemetery in Oak Hill near Sycamore Crossing Road, consists of two neighboring plots, apparently primarily for the Garnett & Bonner families. West plot, (Garnett) has 20 known interments, 10 marked. The East (Bonner) Plot has 7 known interments, one marked. This cemetery is also known as Ward's Chapel.
|Please remember that many of the older cemeteries are located on private property. Please respect not only the cemetery but also the owner's rights. Always obtain permission to enter private property.|
NOTE: I only do transcribing and helping people with genealogical research. I have nothing to do with the cemetery, so if you are looking for information on purchasing plots or rules and regulations of the cemetery, contact the caretaker or a local funeral home.
PLEASE CHECK the Cemetery Index page as the below table may not be complete.
