One of the oldest known graves in the historic cemetery off East Olliff Street, that of Lizzie M. Roberson, dates from her burial in June 1899.
It has been renamed the A.C. Dunlap Memorial Cemetery, but many people still know the cemetery to be toured Saturday morning as the “Colored People Cemetery.”
