Thank you for taking a photo of the funeral home marker. I really appreciate your care in placing a clear photo. He is my second cousin!

RE: Blacks Cemetery

A you know African American cemeteries some times have two names, mainly because another person has bought land from another owner. Do you know where Greenlawn cemetery in Beaumont, Jefferson, Tx. , on Gill st., well just a fence seperates Black's from Greenlawn, then on the same location a older cemetery "Simmons" is right across from St. Helena St., there are graves well into those woods, but a few markers are standing. "Blacks" cemetery is still burying folks in it. There is another African American cemetery with a few graves in it on Tram road, if you turn on Vinson it curves to the left and becomes Dusty Lane, right there in that curve is a drive path that leads into a field that has been designated as a cemetery by ?, I gave it a name since I couldn't find that it had one "The Old Voth Road African American Cemetery". Petrys Cemetery had several names, "Carbonville cemetery", Voth Cemetery, and in 2012, the obituary write up for Marjorie Polidore Brooks, said that she was buried in "Brooks Cemetery" AKA Petrys. I haven't been out there to see if anyone has set a marker for her but that is on my list of things to do.
