Napier Cemetery Page
There are many unmarked graves in this early African-American cemetery. We are told many persons buried here worked for the Napier Furnace.  There is indication of an old abandoned road a near this cemetery. The stones here are nice but nature is reclaiming this cemetery. It is a short distance from Napier Road and the only way to this cemetery is to climb and walk.  Charlie Couch who was raised nearby showed us the way and also helped record the stones.
