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

Shawna;
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.
