In Reply to: searching for slave ancestors by SHAWNA TRAYLOR of 896

There are slaves buried outside the Traylor Cemetery near Mt. Pleasant (Titus County) these were some that came to Texas with the original Traylors that settled here. Also I know of a Traylor ONLY Cemetery that is believed to also be slaves of Traylor owners. No whites are buried in the cemetery. Let me know if I can help. I have taken some pictures of the slave tombstones. Some names are chisled out on rock. I live near by in Gilmer. Currently working on Traylor book to cover this line of Traylors.
