FRIENDSHIP CEMETERY (African-American), Nacogdoches County, Texas, was recorded and photographed on March 15 by Bob Britnell (misterbob@suddenlink.net). 
DIRECTIONS:  In Nacogdoches, go north on Loop 224/US 59 to FM 343 (Industrial Blvd), and turn left (west).  The cemetery is on the left, 13 miles out on this road. This cemetery is actually two cemeteries, separated by a chain-link fence.  The larger Caucasian cemetery is at the end of the driveway through the gate under the sign; the African-American cemetery is through the gates closer to the highway.  The two cemeteries are transcribed separately.
