Red Hill Paramount Baptist Church Cemetery

Submitted by Melvin Byrd

This Church was The Red Hill Paramount Baptist Church, Cemetery. I went personally to this Cemetery with a resident that knew, they camped there and let the children play there when the cemetery was in better shape than it is now. Hunters have gone in and taken up the wooden markers and made camp fires with them. Some were beautiful hand carved permanent type wood, cedar and cypress that would have been there for years to come, had not they had been removed. As always, Melvin Byrd
