|New Hope Cemetery
|| I really appreciate your website, and I don't mind the use of the
word "negro" to describe those grounds were African Americans were burried.
But African Americans is a gentler term. My ancestors are burreid
in New Hope Church cemetery, which is not on the list. I got this information
from my late father's 91-year old first cousins, both now living in Aiken.
We are all decendants of a Jack Miller and his wife who are burried in New
Hope Cemetery. I have found the names of other distant relatives of mine
(Best, Riley, Robinson -- my birth name) in Allen Chappel Cemetery, but so
far no Miller's. That's because most of them are in New Hope or Westley,
neither of which are on your list. Do you think you could find out
what happened to New Hope, and send me the information in an email? I will
even call you if you send me a phone number and times to call. I will be
calling from Sweden, where I live temporarily. While here I wrote an
autobiography which I sent to the Allendale public library. They in turn
forwarded it to the State Archives. The name of the book: Not Even In Your
Dreams, by Madubuko Robinson Diakité (1992). Please accept my
humble thanks for doing a good job on the cemeteries, and for sending me
any information you may have on the New Hope Cemetery in Allendale, S.C.
