Here is what I have been told:
-It is located at the intersection of Edgewood Church and Stallings Road

Resting in the African American section of the cemetery, according to the headstone information I was given, are:

Roscoe Wooten 2.4.1891-8.27.1954 (husband of Rebecca Ann Edwards Wooten)

Margaret "Mag" Wooten Parker 6.8.1905-4.13.2001 (Daughter of Margaret Edwards Wooten)

Bruce Wooten Jr. (Jr. is headstone mistake) 3.7.1920-10.16.1991 (son of Margaret Wooten Parker)

James K. Edwards 3.8.1945-8.7.1991

Rev. Chesterfield Knight 7.25.1883-2.20.1947 (husband of Harriet Edwards Knight)

Harriet (Edwards) Knight 6.30. 1884-6.4.1943 (however she died in 1983) Daughter of Rebecca Ann Eason Edwards and Adam Edwards

Rebecca, wife of Adam Edwards 10.1857-8.1923 (daughter of Jane and Louis Eason)

Nora, daughter of Adam and Rebecca Edwards 10.1.1892-5.29.1921

I was told there is an older, less kept section of the African American section of the cemetery. I suspect there are other African American Edwards in this section based on the number of direct connections I found on this list. I also believe Margaret Edwards Wooten and her husband are in the older section based on accounts from her grandchildren.
