Slave Cemetery

I've paid a good number of visits to the Culloden City Cemetery, but for some reason had never noted this little marker. It's in the middle of a lot with nothing but trees that I pass just before getting to the first cemetery gate.

 

David said something about it, and went to look.

 

Be dogged if it isn't a whole 'nother cemetery ... with not a single marked grave ... and a HISTORIC one at that. And it wasn't on Find A Grave. The two cemeteries are separated by a chain link fence.

 

It's on Find A Grave now. I've got to email the Admin to designate it as a "defunct" cemetery.

And I posted one "Unknown" memorial to stand for them all:

The prior photo in my stream is a closer-up view of the marker. This one shows the context of the empty field centered by the lone marker ...
