Description

on verso: This is the old slave church, built by the slaves of the Barnes. This church was maintained and used as a church until the middle 1960s. This church is located on the Old Stantonsburg Wilson Road about 2 miles from Stauntonsburg, on the Yates Farm. Across the road in front of the church to the west is the old slave graveyard. It is on the Barnes Farm, down the path leading to the creek right as you go down the hill. There are graves on both sides. The best time of year to find them is early winter and you will still have to look. This picture is by Guy Cox of Raines and Cox of Wilson, Nov. 1981. This information by J. Norwood Whitley Jr. December 1981.
