Cemetery Clean Up

The Town of Chincoteague Cemetery Committee, will be conducting their Fall clean up on November 4th, from, 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon. We will be working on the Odd Fellows Cemetery.
The Odd Fellows (IOOF) Cemetery, on Willow Street, is one of the two African American burial grounds on Chincoteague Island. The other is the, Christ Union Baptist Church Cemetery, on Willow Street, behind the Carnival grounds.
The 19th century on Chincoteague, saw the establishment of numerous fraternal organizations on the Island. The Improved Order of Redmen, the Junior Order United American Mechanics, the Masonic Lodge, and the, Independent Order of Odd Fellows. These were all white male groups, but the Odd Fellows also included an organization for black Americans, the Grand United Order of Odd Fellows. It is this fraternal group that established the Odd Fellows Cemetery to provide an honorable resting place for their members, their families, and other blacks in the community.
Please bring gloves, rakes, brush trimmers, as well as a cheerful attitude, and join us on Saturday, Nov. 4th. Thank you.
