    We stumbled upon a very old cemetery while I was visiting my family in upstate New York, and it was in bad shape, but still in better shape than this one. The cemetery we found only had one or two graves for people that passed in the 1900’s, all the rest passed before that, so it’s a little more understandable that’s it’s been forgotten and abandoned, considering nobody that knew those people in life would still be alive today. That cemetery also looked as though it once extended over to where the road is now, as if they just paved right through it. It’s so sad to see people that have been completely forgotten, especially since many of the people in this cemetery passed so recently.

    I think it's a trifoliate orange tree, sometimes called a Hardy orange. (???) They have large spikes, and sour tasting fruit as I remember.

    Anyone know of history about the Biggers family in that area? I would assume they must have been well known in the area at one time? That's something that I get excited about! The stepping back in history and discovering people who lived, just like us, and who died, just like we all will. I live in western Canada and can afford my own local places, and not travel right now. Would love to hear comments people know about though.

  • Kimberleyanne Demong

    How sad. Not only did they endure the horror of slavery but then to be buried with no name. To add insult to injury they lie forgotten. They deserve so much better. I hope they are resting with the angels today. Thank you for bringing us this video. We need to remember this very tragic time in our history.

    Thank you for the great videos. It's sad that the old ones are so unattended in your state. Do you ever what to just clean them up (not restore, just clean)? If someone doesn't take care of them they will disappear forever and that should not happen. I wish I could restore some of the cemeteries where I live in Maine. I have seen quite a few where the stones have fallen over, or they are cracked badly or missing altogether. Have you ever checked with a local town office to ask where the cemetery records are? There must be maps somewhere.

    There are a few places on the Natchez Trace pkwy that might be video ideas. We rode the Trace on bicycles so all of my measurements start in Natchez Mississippi. 1st Christ Episcopal Church Built in the 1790s it's on the Church Hill loop hwy 553 it has a grave yard in the back lot. Wagners Grocery built in 1837 is across the road from the church. 2nd Winsor Ruins Built in 1861 it burnt in 1890. Exit left at mile 30.7 3rd Wintergreen Cemetery in Port Gibson Mississippi, civil war graves plus some very old graves. There are cedar trees that two men can't reach around. Port Gibson is the third oldest city in Mississippi, founded in 1802. If you like court houses they have a nice one, just a cool town. 4th Rocky Springs (old abandoned town) mile 54.8, It was settled in 1790s there'a a cool old church and cemetery. The piano still played when we were there in 2011. 5th Cowels Mead Cemetery mile 88.1 We rode up to Nashville but most of the history was in the southern part. You'll be close to Vicksburg too. There were some good websites on the Trace that you might find something more interesting than I did. As it worked out we rode it during that tornado outbreak, nothin like bicycles an tornadoes. lol

    I think what you guys are doing are the best things in the world you'll keep up the good work and it said that cemeteries been like that for over 30 years I think the church should be responsible for keeping at Cemetery up even though their church was moved and they had a new one built they should still be responsible for keeping it keep on it even if they're still paying taxes on the property they should be held responsible in the state should make them squat clean it too but again guys great job you're doing on finding abandoned cemeteries and may God bless you all and everything you do

    When ever you come across someone that fought in the civil war or revolutionary war, you should take a picture and write all the information down and than contact either the sons or daughters of the confederacy headquarters and also the sons or daughters of the revolutionary war. It’s very important to do so. For years I did Civilian Civil War Re-enacting. I was a Southern Belle. I searched for several years trying to find where my ancestor who fought for the 8th Virginia Infantry was buried but could never find him. I even had someone that did research helping me and she could not find him. I know where his wife is buried. I know the county he lived in for 30 years after the Civil War and believe he died in that county and maybe was buried on his sons farm. There are a lot of people who are searching for their ancestor that would love to know where they are buried. Keep up the great work.!

    I just discovered your videos have been binge-watching ĺast few days. You should show a video of your family cemetery after it's cleaned up. My aunt use to say she did not want to be buried in the family cemetery because she didn't want a tree growing on her. I understand why she said that because it can be problematic getting family to mow the grass inside the cemetery and just keeping it up in general.

    I'm amazed that there are forgotten cemeteries in your state. I live in Maine, where even small, family cemeteries are cared for, or at least kept clear and mowed. If a stone falls over and there is no family members left no one else bothers to fix them and it is very sad. Some of the oldest graves I have personally seen here have people born in the late 1700s. Also, every veteran's grave is cared for by the VFW (I believe) and a small metal flag holder with flag is stuck in the ground beside the stone. Every single veteran's grave is marked, no matter where it is. Thank you for posting this as I enjoy exploring old cemeteries!
