Baxley Cemetery-Baxley, Georgia

This is a small town cemetery for Baxley, Georgia. Based on the ancestry records and location of the burials, this cemetery started out as segregated. The African American side had many plants that you see in the photos throughout the section. I don’t know enough about plants to know what they are or what they mean, but they do remind me of a stronger spider plant.
