Second Asbury (Zion) African Methodist Episcopoal (AME) Church and Cemetery

aka, Old Slaves Burying Ground/Cherry Lane or Colored Cemetery

From Lynn Rogers at FACSI:
Upon reviewing old files held by Friends of Abandoned Cemeteries I came across the following burial records for the obliterated cemetery, known as the Second Asbury (Zion) African Methodist Episcopal (AME) Church and Cemetery aka, Old Slaves Burying Ground/Cherry Lane or Colored Cemetery that once stood at the corner of Forest Avenue @ North Avenue. The site is now a shopping center. A bank stands on the property.

Many, many thanks to FACSI and Lynn for the information!
