Restoring a Legacy .....

Historic Dempsey D. Butler Cemetery located in Camden NJ is a 144 year old African American and Civil War Union Soldier burial site.

Restoration is greatly needed to perserve this landmark and to revive a "forgotten Legacy" in the neighborhood of Centerville.

PLEASE join Friends of Butler Cemetery Association in restoring the Legacy by making a donation through Heart of Camden http://www.heartofcamden.org/

OR you may donate building materials to replace hairpin fencing, benches, cemetery markers and walkways.

Thank you for your support!

This article offers great insight as to how freed slaves and their descendants used the written media to attempt to reconnect with displaced family members.

In my opinion “Information Wanted” Advertisements is one of the oldest forms of genealogy research.

Help connect and reconnect families. Please access butlercemetery.org and review the list of those interred at Historic Butler Cemetery.
