Macedonia African Cemetery

Hidden in the woods behind a shopping center on Medlock Bridge Road in Johns Creek is a small slave cemetery.

The Macedonia African Cemetery is all that's left of The Macedonia African Methodist Church that once stood where affluent St. Ives Country Club is now.

The people buried in the cemetery were former slaves of the plantation owner Maj. George Morgan Waters. Per the terms of Water's will, the slaves were freed after he died in 1852.

In the 1800s slaves were not buried with headstones or on cleared land. They could only be buried in the woods, according to Johns Creek Post writer Jennifer Jensen.

The freed slaves used money provided by Waters' will to buy small headstones for the graves.

Fulton County was responsible for the maintenance and upkeep of the slave cemetery until Johns Creek was incorporated in 2006.

Then Johns Creek city government neglected the cemetery and it became a dumping ground for trash and a homeless encampment.

A group of neighbors in the St. Ives Country Club shamed the City Council members into removing the homeless encampment.

Now the Clear Channel Outdoor Advertising company has plans to erect a huge LED billboard within 500 feet of the slave cemetery.

The GA Dept. of Transportation initially denied the billboard permit because no billboards can be erected within 500 feet of the cemetery.

But money talks... so GDOT sent out an archeologist to re-measure the cemetery.

According to Jensen, the GDOT archeologist and her 2-person crew "came late and left early."

The GDOT archaeologist determined the planned billboard was 545 feet away from the cemetery. The City Council approved the billboard in violation of state law.

Jensen explains that "the law is intended to provide a solemn place for the souls and relatives" of the former slaves.

This slave cemetery is a small piece of African history. It would be a shame if Johns Creek allowed Clear Channel to desecrate the slave cemetery with a billboard.

If you care, please call the city of Johns Creek and ask them to deny the permit for the billboard near the Macedonia African Cemetery.

The number to call Johns Creek city offices is (678) 512-3200.

Or you can email the Johns Creek mayor and City Council members directly:

    Excellent Post @sandrarose

  • iWasteTime

    Good Morning Roses.
    Thank You Sandra for this informative post and a sneak peak at the pay for play aspects of local, state and federal government.

  • ShelbyMoore

    Shoker! Everyone on the council is white (Yup, I'm including the Asian in the white category too) https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/efb315a683f5c0ede1725aff4a275c545f1632384a8448102511b4cc7d587aba.gif .

    Now that's a shame. Money ? is always talking.

  • iyonah

    Great post.

  • https://www.etsy.com/shop/AMarieNaturals Lovezoe

    All alabasters. Got a chance to watch 13th. I ain't been that angry watching something in a long time.

  • I aint the one

    Morning Zoe! Ava put her foot in it didn't she? Well researched, well told, all around well executed. It's a film that deserves to be labeled a 'must-watch/see.' I think it should be shown in schools.

  • https://www.etsy.com/shop/AMarieNaturals Lovezoe

    My kids will be watching. Prison is the modern day slavery.

  • Incog-knee-gress

    I hope locals help save their piece of black history. These are all over the south and country. Have my own slave/black local cemetery we are saving. Find you one people. It's important.

    http://www.newsobserver.com/news/local/counties/wake-county/article21187317.html

  • Jen_n_juice

    Sandra, you actually supporting saving this history? You been watching slave movies this weekend huh? Getting back to your roots huh?

  • Jen_n_juice

    My friend wanted to watch it last night. I'm like nah bish I gotta go to work wit yt folks in the morning. I need a WHOLE weekend to simmer down

  • Jen_n_juice

    Especially the privately owned prisons

  • L.T.L. Since 2007

    I've seen it 3x and get even more mad with each watch. 1st time by myself, 2nd w/the Mrs and 3rd time I made ALL the lil lurks sit down and watch.

    Award winning!

  • Zizzle

    An informative post. ??

  • SameoleJ

    Question........why did slave owners wait until they died to free their slaves? You always read Mr. XYZ, freed his slaves in his will.........and it is usually said like it was some "grand gesture", which I understand as the people were freed.....but it was still selfish, as they remained in service to the person until then, so it wasn't really that much of a "favor/good deed" was it?

  • https://www.etsy.com/shop/AMarieNaturals Lovezoe

    Yup! All mine will be watching too. Hubby was so quiet. It's crazy how we are treated, and that ALEC. I just can't.

  • SameoleJ

    In lighter "Black Girls Rock/Black Magic Reigns"...did you know that Flo Jo's record breaking times of 10.49 seconds in the 100m and 21.34 in the 200m are yet to be broken?

  • http://totallifechanges.com/PurTEA VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    Sandra my lip is quivering and oatmeal is going to have salty tears in it today! Won't He do it!!!! Now let me call me proceed to gather myself and call this Mayor !

  • Libra80sBaby

    This is awful...smh

  • iWasteTime

    Because it was not popular to do when they were alive and most towed the line. There were groups of owners that would target the more progressive owners and mess up their crops, kidnap their slaves and black ball the masters.
    Secretary Clinton alluded to it at the last debate, how Lincoln had two faces on the slavery issue, to ensure that his measure would pass

  • SameoleJ

    Okay, I understand....but in death wouldn't freeing the slaves also cause problems for their remaining family members?

  • Howard Alum ?

    But if it was a Jewish cemetery, this would not even be discussed....smh ?, Thanks Sandra, I will definitely be calling and reaching out to Mayor Reed to see what he can do!

  • Incog-knee-gress

    They faced social backlash if they did it while they were alive. Financial implications as well.

  • Libra80sBaby

    I watched it this weekend too.....Difficult to watch. It's SO fuked up outchea

  • SameoleJ

    And wouldn't that also affect their remaining family members as well?

  • https://www.etsy.com/shop/AMarieNaturals Lovezoe

    Well this not his city and he too busy being a socialite.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Believe it or not many slaves actually didn't want to leave their masters ... But Ion know... It is what is

  • Traci404

    Dont POST
    Call and Email
    Get st ives cc involved
    Same thing has happened to Indian burial grounds.

    No way this would ever happen to Jewish people.

    Honor our ancestors, dont let this happen.

    I am stll shaking my head over a homless encampment there.

    that yall let happen
    WTH ?

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Exactly ... He is the Mayor of the (city of Atlanta) ... John's Creek separate city.. SMH

    It's such a well done film. That woman is a natural born filmmaker. Now THIS is the type of film that inspires activism. I said below it needs to be mandatory viewing in schools. Our youth must be equipped with this type of information.

    Yeah Asians think they are white.
    I've seen several of them holding up "All Lives Matter" signs, but they will realize it too late.
    Ha,ha,ha!!

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    It is actually ... To be honest smh

  • Incog-knee-gress

    Yes. Because unless plantation was sold too then it bankrupted the operation. There was no one to work the field and the estate had to pay someones to do so. There is a movie where this is depicted. I wanna say Queen. Slaves were freed and plantation went bankrupt.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Girl I'm Headed to peachtree city... I use to want to live out there it's actually getting pretty rough out there in John Creek

  • I aint the one

    ALEC is what got me. I regret that I never bothered to research them when they were initially brought to my attention a few years back.

    This film provides so much context to Black Lives Matter. The system that stands to profit from black bodies locked up, will ensure their enforcement agencies are empowered enough to keep the inventory rolling in. It's all connected. #RIPKalief

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Surprisingly good post; there were so many opportunities for it to go wrong. Today may be a good day...

  • Mystery User

    That is the cemetery right smack the f* dab down by what used to be the twin towers..? Sh*t was mad creepy its like tall buildings and then a jam packed cemetery with a shit ton of headstones!

  • Junkanoo

    This is how America can really be transformed by being actively informed about local politics and getting involved it's more immediate and hand's on compared to a Presidential election were everyone seems to focus their energy

  • Buttercup

    Can I come over and drive your golf cart? LOL. The draw for John's Creek was the schools, but I found equally as great schools in Dunwoody. I had planned to move to Inman Park when dude moved back, but since we're not together anymore, I'm going to keep my behind in The Wood. Hopefully, Lil Butter will be selected to attend the magnet school next year since he's met all of the qualifications to apply. Schools won't be an issue then.

  • Mystery User

    they forgot how enslaved the were when they were building railroads, in the 1800's huh?

  • OrchidJones-VidaLocaVirgo

    Unfortunately, It's not just a Georgia issue, but this is a situation in most southern states. I just remember my cousin informing me of a similar story with generations of slaves in North Carolina. No value on our lives but definitely no respect in death where there should be peace and rest on our souls.

  • Soda

    I believe so.

  • OrchidJones-VidaLocaVirgo

    Oh I gotta see it!

  • ReadingIsFundamental4Real

    Now this is a cause I can get behind.

  • OrchidJones-VidaLocaVirgo

    Crazy, but I hope the spirits come back and haunt these suckas in they peaceful sleep. Mad all over again. How is every one!!

  • mainey

    This is completely inappropriate for a gaudy billboard to be near a cemetery of our ancestors. Do better!

  • Mystery User

    Most of our cemeteries are built on the outskirts of the city, thus we don't get issues like this. There have been a few instances where cemeteries have been uprooted and replaced. It's typically because of land/ mineral conflicts or tax/foreclosure issues.
    It's one thing if a city is growing out of it's boundaries - but to do this for the sake of advertisement is deplorable...

  • Incog-knee-gress

    A lot didn't want to leave bc they often times, so sadly...starved to death upon freedom. It was a huge hardship being freed. It's so sad to even think about. But basically where are you going to work when everyone has free labor? How are you going to avoid recapture? How are you going to eat. Hats totally off to the freed ones that made it. A lot did not.

  • mainey

    no I didn't know that. I did run into her sister in law (Jackie Joyner Kersee) at the walmart. She was buying a lot of air fresheners but was very sweet.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    If you willing to drive that far .... I getting the fawk away .. far enough from the city in seclusion ... lolol ... it's hard having kids because these school systems now ... dekalb county schools have completely changed since I was in school sheesh

  • MissHarlem

    This isn't exclusive to the south. In NY the disrespect is ridiculous. Buildings are built on top. Now there's little mention but you have to put your glasses on to find the mention. Infamous Central Park was built off of disrespect. Bottom line is if you think that what we are told our history then continue to be blind and shocked when you hear stories like this. Be informed and get involved.

  • MissHarlem

    Yes I did. I was obsessed with her and Jackie. They also mentioned it this past Olympics

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    a lot!!!!!

  • pecancandy

    Yep be done fooled around and put some shug avery pee in the coffee.

  • Lurk_Mode_Off

    Agree. Will make that call Sandra. Thanks for this post

  • Howard Alum ?

    I know, but it's a neighboring city and you never know....it's worth trying ?

  • Soda

    I found it disgusting that some of them protested when an Asian rookie cop shot & killed an unarmed Black man in NY, not because it was an "accident" but because he was indicted when previously White officers were able to get off with no charges for doing the same thing. Never mind that he killed a man.

  • Buttercup

    I love Ptree City, so I'm definitely willing to make that drive. I grew up in South GA, so I wasn't too familiar with DeKalb County Schools. When I was researching before moving back, I was getting anxiety, because it was so far off from what I experienced and was used to in the Midwest. I was >this< close to saying fugg it and just enrolling him in Westminster.

  • Howard Alum ?

    True, but you never know...he might or might know some one who can help. Don't forget, they're all friends at the end of the day. They all reports to the same person when their city needs help....the Govenor!

  • Low E. TUH!

My car in front, my uncle in back and my cousin on the driver's side. And it was very apparent that it was a funeral.......she cut into it directly in the middle.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    I know that everyone, at some point in their life, has dug in their nose; however, I do not understand how people can be so brazen about it. ?This nasty azz chick is sitting at a table, that people eat their lunch from, and is literally having a pick her nose marathon. ?If she could, she would stick multiple fingers in her nose. ? I tried to stare her disgusting self down but she literally never looked up. I had to look away because I was about to vomit.

    Great news! You'd think driver safety issues at that intersection would have prevented the billboard. Thankfully, Bob Fulton protected that historic cemetery. Thank you, GDOT! I hope the petition continues, though, because we don't want a substitute JC location either!

    Whole entire thing with Jefferson and his slaves is beyond convoluted. Some say he couldnt free slaves due to VA law (in VA, massa had to die at one time in order to free his slaves).

    Oh please, recap deez? I enjoyed the film. I was a big fan growing up. Huge. She was the queen of West Coast hip hop soul. 1 album and all. She was an enigma. She spoke like a baby yet sang like a lady. A big, soulful type of lady at that. Unique. We'd never seen/heard anything like her. So yeah...I thought the movie was top notch production wise. The whole third person effect. You never know with lifetime, this was some quality production! It was a bit boring though. I didn't learn anything about Michel'le. Nothing that I didn't already know. Hopefully now folks understand the whole fake married to Suge thing now. She's not always great at articulating things. I think she was written off as 'crazy'. She was indeed fake married to him. Enough to fool the prison system or pay off the system. They don't just hand out conjugals...Will Dre survive Surviving Compton? That's the question of the day. Judging by his mentions 'you ain't fit to be a doctor, not even a damn nurse'??? I guess we'll see. I don't like how Dre doesn't shower his kids with money. I've never liked that. You would have never guessed Andre jr was Dre's son. Just based on his homely appearance. I don't believe in the tough love let them make it on their own they'll appreciate it more bs...I don't...If I'm a multi millionaire, my kids are too!jmo...I bet his kids by that white man,,,I bet they have all sorts of accounts, trust funds and so on?

    Yeah, north fulton county ( John's creek, sandy springs, milton, and etc )used to part of the city of Atlanta but they(white folks) broke away in the early 2000s to become their own cities because they said they were tired of their tax dollars being misused. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/68bc52b2a4f54f3dc0d4dea29ec0c12c203c19b65d4d18beb2fbbd13d0be6a55.gif

    John's creek was the city of Atlanta but they became their own city because they were tired of the city of Atlanta wasting their tax dollars. John's creek hates the city of Atlanta and will not be asking them for help and the goes for the rest of north fulton county.

    okay, I had to go search.

    The lake covered a few unique artifacts in Northern Georgia, such as the old Looper Speedway that used to be off of Laurel Park. In order to construct the lake, both farms and bottom land had to be bought from individuals and private companies. Furthermore, the Army Corps of Engineers had to move six churches, 250 families, 20 cemeteries and 15 businesses in order to place the lake.

    Absolutely that rice cake considers himself white. No greater honor than for an asian woman to get a white man.

    The fact that the mayor and Johns Creek board members are willing to allow a piece of history to be destroyed for a tacky billboard speaks volumes about their integrity, or rather their lack thereof. They ought to be ashamed of themselves. Trash.

    Excellent documentary!!

  • Carrington

    I don't see a face on here that looks as if they'd give a shit.

    Wow, and Johns Creek is listed as the safest City in Atlanta. Middle to upper class. Wonder how many slaves carved out there lust forest streets and paved roads.

  • whitty hutton

    He/she is bound and determined to contact Kasim. ??Folks done listed a laundry list of shit going on in Kasim's area of responsibility / priority...yet Howard Alum ain't hearing you. Folks like that get on my damn nerves sometimes. Damn...Call and write Johns Creek or the powers that be for FULTON County. Kasim ain't got nothin to do with this.

  • Lisa daniels

    Exactly. John's creek said f atlanta in the early 2000s, we got enough money to run this bish and they did just that. I think se people just want to drag for the sake pf dragging. I am not a fan of Kasim since snowmaggeden when he disappear to make a baby while everyone else is baby was trapped at school but I am not going to drag him because John's creek is act ignorant.
