Slave Cemeteries in Clear Creek

Two slave cemeteries, with graves marked by elongated fieldstones, have been located around Clear Creek.  Slaves were sometimes buried at churches like St. John in the Wilderness and Ebenezer Baptist Church.


Black families in Edneyville have farmed in the area since before the Civil War.

After the church moved from Edwards Mountain to Salisbury Road in Edneyville, there was dispute over who owned the old cemetery at the original location.  The church eventually won title, but not before the old grave markers were removed.
