Barker Cemetery
Newton County,

Barker Cemetery

Here in unmarked graves lie
George Barker, his first wife Leah
and his second wife Martha.
Doubtless some of Martha's 13 slaves
were buried here before emancipation.
Free of the stigma of of slavery
descendants of both families
were buried here into the late 1900's.

There are many unmarked graves in this cemetery.
