Update on Unmarked Graves from 1800's Found in South Bibb County, Georgia

More than a month ago I posted about an article I read regarding some unmarked graves from 1800's found in south Bibb County, Georgia. They were believed to be part of a slave cemetery on a McArthur family plantation. An update has recently been reported. The number of burials is up to 38, and it's believed that the cemetery was used beyond emancipation. Descendants from all parties involved are working together to uncover as much as possible. It is really nice to see. Follow the link to read the full article by Phillip Ramati --> Black families used south Bibb County cemetery beyond slavery era, DOT finds.
