Thanks ladies! 

 

A very special "Thank You" to my Aunt Margaret Bishop McCann for taking us to this cemetery. Also to my mom, Goldie Griffith for helping me again.  Nancy Bray

Upon entering Falmouth, turn left onto Shelby at the traffic light. Follow Shelby all the way out to Licking Street and turn right. Licking is the street in front of the Bedford House is. From Licking go to the second stop sign, and make a left hand turn onto Marquette. I am not sure how far, maybe a mile or so. The cemetery is on the right hand side of the road. 
This is an African-American cemetery, and has been referred to as the "new colored cemetery." I do not know who is doing the cleaning up on the cemetery, but they are doing an excellent job.  Nancy Bray
