Rediscovering a Veteran's "Forgotten' Grave site




Randolph Hall, U.S. Army, was laid to rest in the Brick Mill Cemetery. During recent stabilization of the cemetery by Resurrection Mission staff, his grave was located.

Below are a series of images of the process to upright Randolph's Veteran headstone.

Official records, as of this date, confirm not-less-then twenty-five Veterans, from WWI to Vietnam Wars are laid to rest in this all African American Cemetery, est. ca.1900.

Currently and through Resurrection Mission, fifteen cemeteries of various sizes are being stabilized, preserved and maintained. Brick Mill Cemetery is the largest all African American Cemetery known within Onslow County, North Carolina. It, along with most of the other cemeteries are on private property and not accessable to the general public but, direct descendents are allowed to visit at anytime.

During the year, remember our Veterans, no matter which era they served.

Best wishes,

Jack
