Comments:

There are many unidentified/unmarked graves going back towards the creek. Family descendants have reported that there are slaves buried here.

Note from Terry:
"Great Grandpa was a Confederate Soldier and spent the last part of the war in Point Lookout, MD. I have looked up info on Point Lookout and it was not a nice place. I'm sure the slaves buried there was probably Great Grandpa's. I'm not proud of that fact or the fact he was a Confederate, but he fought for what he believed in."
