Cemetery Log Date: May 25, 2013



Sanksville Cemetery

This cemetery was established during Florida’s Reconstruction sometime in the 1860s to serve the rural community of Bakerville.  Both black and white members of the community used the burying ground, though the races are separated within the cemetery.  Many graves are unmarked.
