Bee Tree Branch African-American Cemetery - Darby

Another cemetery is in the news. The Bee Tree cemetery is on the front page of the Pasco Tribune today. It seems that it is part of a 475 acre parcel that is to become 300 homes.

  1. I am glad you pointed that newspaper article out.

    On Jeff Cannon's website he has pictures of the cemetery.

    Also the USGenWeb page does not list any gravemarkers for Bee Tree.

  2. In today's Dick Eastman's Newsletter there is a similar story where the developer worked around a surprise cemetery in a development.
