Upper Union Cemetery — View all Interments
The African American Belfountain Church (north of Ravenna) merged with the Siloam Church (even farther north) and formed the Union Church. The Siloam Cemetery then came to be called the Union Cemetery. The Belfountain Cemetery came to be known as Upper Union Cemetery.
This cemetery is about an acre in size and sparsely populated by markers. We suspect many unmarked graves. The oldest engraved stone marks the burial of three children of Henry and Callie Anthony, the oldest born & died 16 Jun 1885. The next oldest marker indicates a burial in 1936 with the majority of burials beginning in the 1950s with marked burials as recent as 2005.
We will be adding to the listing information obtained from death records, obituaries and family information.
