BELL, Sgt. Maj. John, US military marker, III US Colored Infantry  - war service not specified, but before WW I, 1918 and Civil War, 1861, or after. Weeds had gotten tall here and the grounds were burned off. A very bad idea since tombstones that are burned like this one - over time - will crumble to dust.  3708/3709

Do not confuse this cemetery with the Indian Creek Primitive Baptist Church (white) church and cemetery north of here several miles on Indian Creek Rd. This church is active and the PB church is not.

This publication was developed by starting with a listing from the book Giles County Cemeteries and adding or combining the inscriptions from photos of the stones which looked like they were unique to the first listing. So the listings without a photo are strictly from the book. Since the book listings generally had no dates and were probably from someone's memory the weakness of that would be that a nick name in that listing and a formal name on the tombstone would make it look like two different persons when in actuality it was one person. So there may be duplication in the above listing. Listings without dates are likely to be for interments without a formal marker or a marker that may be lost.

Visited & photographed 6 Oct 2010 by C. Wayne Austin. Initial typing by Faye Bradford. Added to this site 15 Oct 2012 by the C. Wayne Austin. Also published in the book Giles County Cemeteries, Page 178-179 by the Historical Society, 1986. Presented on Findagrave.com with errors - the above listings & photos are co-mingled with the (white) Indian Creek Primitive Baptist Church Cemetery several miles north of here. Added together they are both incomplete. Slave graveyard identification and information aided by George Newman who knows the history of this area probably better than anyone living today.
