Faithful Hannah Baptist Church Cemetery
(Faithful Hannah Church Rd. - Middletown, Lake Landing Twp.)

I visited this large black cemetery in late October 2001 and tried to take as many photographs of the headstones as possible. Night time caught me so my photography session had to end. Making the pictures was made more difficult by the marshy ground on which the stones stood and also by the cold weather and wind that day. Some of the stones had sunk into the ground almost to the tops which did not allow me to even read a name, much less the birth and death dates. The list below was partially taken from an unpublished booklet by Marjorie T. Selby, Marilyn Green and the History Class of Mattamuskeet High School in 1975.  Many of the graves listed here can no longer be found in this cemetery.  The people that have an * by their name are the ones I have photos of; the remainder information came from Mrs. Selby's survey of the cemetery.  If any researcher can add to this list or correct errors please e-mail Kay Midgett Sheppard for inclusion.
