Center Star Cemetery near Mooresville/Wheeler

Can anyone tell me what church still uses Center Star Cemetery or did up unitl 2003? It is off Arrowhead Landing Road west of Mooresville, on Wheeler Wildlife Refuge.

The records show 1500 burials- 75 with gravestones. We found gravestones from abour 2003 back to 1850. Many of the graves are unmarked and not quite sunken. Very grown up and neglected almost inaccessible.

Have photos.

Aerial phots show there was a church there maybe through the late 50s. I understqand this is a black cemetery.

I would appreciate any info- current or historic related to the cemetery.

I am researching the lost town of Cottonport, AL (1818-1850) and would particularly like to find out if this is the old site of Cottonport's "African Cottonport" Baptist church.
