1887 slave's grave

Members of the St. Philip's Episcopal Church cemetery committee recently placed a new marker at the grave site of Mary Ann Simmes, as the original from 1887 was very weathered and hard to read. Betsy Welsh, Mickey Evans, and other members of the St. Philip's Episcopal Church cemetery committee, researched a story behind the former slave’s grave site located at the church.
