Many local African-American leaders are buried in this cemetery, including Reverend M.P. Hall, founder and president of Friendship College, Ida Mae Barber, a teacher at Emmett Scott School and J.A. Gatlings, a local doctor. The cemetery has fallen into a state of disrepair over the years, but recently, a group of concerned citizens volunteered to clean up and look after the area. It appears that there are more than 100 graves dating from the early 1900s to the late 1940s in the cemetery.
