Antioch Prosperity Cemetery

(African American)

Transcribed by Vernon and Linda Binger

While we were walking this cemetery, one of the caretakers approached us and was able to tell us that the true name of Antioch Cemetery is indeed Antioch Prosperity Cemetery and is cared for by three or four local churches.
