NEARBY BLACK CEMETERY, STIVERSVILLE, MAURY COUNTY TENNESSEE

This is a view looking east into the Black Cemetery down the hill. It is actually in the northeast quadrant of the block of land fenced.

The many stones of the black section can be seen here, including the undertakers marker on the right center side of the photo. Many unmarked stones abound here. I believe the stone in the distant (in the light spot upper center) also belongs to this cemetery and is the Wortham memorials. One can see the eastern white section in the distance from this view.
