Greeley Cemetery

From Mt. Enterprise go 5 miles east to Concord - JCT Farm Road 95. Continue east on US 84 for 6/10 of a mile to Greely CME Church on the left. The cemetery is beside the church. There are many unmarked graves here.

There are also graves here that used to be in a cemetery across the highway from this Greely Church cemetery but when the highway was put thru, the smaller cemetery was moved in with the Greely Church graves. An old Rusk County map shows that cemetery to be named "Boles Cemetery" but Mr. Sam Boles who lives close to this cemetery told me that the name of the people in the smaller cemetery that were moved to Greely was "Graves". Both were black cemeteries.
