Of Mixed Race?
Note: On the question of color, it isn't a matter of what we post and for whom, when it comes to family history it does matter. The following are unclassified cemeteries with respect to race. Mosely's Funeral home are known to exclusively serve the African American community but in the early census records some individuals may have been classified as Mulato or black (Mosely tags are found in Hosea). As a webhost, I am not here to judge skin color or who belongs in what category. If you can help to better identify where these resting souls belong to help fellow researchers...I would most grateful to hear from you. We may have cemeteries where there is a combination of black, mixed and white.
