Memorial Marker






"This memorial is dedicated to the 30 ex-slaves freed by slaveholder, Charles Lambert, Jr. of Bedford County, Virginia in his last will and testament in 1843. The group migrated northward, crossed the Ohio River, and settled on 265.5 acres of Morgan Twp. in Gallia County, Ohio, where they could live as free men and women. The memorial also records the names of individuals known to be buried in this cemetery without markers. We regret that many others are unknown and could not be included."
