Record Number: 

Jaenicke, Michael. “Sacred Grounds [Book Title].” Robesonian February 5, 2007.


This article announces the publication of Sacred Grounds: Gone But Not Forgotten, a book written by Jane Blanks Barnhill and published by the Robeson County Historical and Genealogical Society. The 374-page book lists, in alphabetical order, information from grave markers or headstones (name, birth date, death date, and other information) in 162 Indian cemeteries in Robeson County. The book is arranged by name of cemetery or burial ground. Barnhill cautions that it is not exhaustive; it does not include about 100 small family cemeteries, most of which have 4-6 graves each. Sam West, president of the Robeson County Historical and Genealogical Society, hopes this will be the first in a series of books on the genealogy of Robeson County Indians.
