Historic Black Cemetery.  When visited in Summer of 2100, the cemetery was well cared for.  There are probably more burials than reported by Findagrave (4) or Howard County (20+).  Both Findagrave and Howard County list this by the names on the only 4 headstones found in  the 1950's (Blackwell, Boston, Fuller & Howard).  This cemetery continues to receive burials as of 2011.
