Francis Jackson, a freed slave, purchased 7 ? acres of woodland here in 1868. Later it would include the black cemetery and "a plain neat little church" built about 1873. The Pastor, Rev. Nicholas Fr. Jackson, lived nearby. The cemetery had 72 burial plots which may have included former slaves. Tombstones no longer exist but some families who rest here are Jackson, Pomplin, Bell, Sisco, Brown, Chase, Blenus, Napson and James.
