There is an old Duncan Cemetery located in the woods off Maughan Road (or Giles Hood Road)  in the Benevola Community in Pickens County, AL. It was the first black cemetery in this area.   There were a number of  hand made grave markers as well as bought markers there many years ago but they are probably broken or destroyed as the grave yard was over grown with weeds and trees in 1950's.  If you have information on any of your relatives buried in this cemetery, please contact me.

Gaskins, Major  (no information)  (Father of Van and Dud Gaskins)
