Friends of Old Stone
The Friends of Old Stone Cemetery have recently gone across the street to the Old Colored Cemetery / Dick Pointer Cemetery to help restore that cemetery as well. They recently uncovered a Miller family and five graves of children which they lifted up to ground level. I cannot express how much I appreciate their efforts. They are also interested in the Sexton for Old Stone who was a Black male surnamed Bowyer. They have restored his gravesite. They are truly interested in cemetery restoration and should be applauded by their efforts. My aunt Mary Ann Hughs and her brother James Littleton (though his stone says James Litton) are buried in the OCC/DPC. Also, my grandfather's sister's husband Samuel Oscar Braddock is buried there.
