Siloam Cemetery

Directions: From Highway 90 on the west side of Quincy, turn left onto Hwy 274 (Bostick Road) which is just before
the Piggly Wiggly. Pass the concrete plant. Take a right on Harbin Road. Harbin Road makes a 90 degree turn
right, then a 90 degree turn left. After the 2nd 90 degree turn go about .3 or .4 mile past the mobile home situated on
the corner of that turn. There is a driveway on the left with a locked gate. There was a tobacco barn there, but it was torn
down recently. There may still be a white concrete building not far behind the gate. If you climb over the gate and walk
straight back to a group of trees, the cemetery is just inside the tree line.

Current conditions 2008: This cemetery is in extreme disrepair. Most of the stones are still upright; however trees have
grown between the graves and it is only a matter of time before limbs and dying trees fall and topple the grave stones.
Briars and shrubby undergrowth have taken over. There is no maintenance of this cemetery. It is obviously used by the
migrant tomato workers as a place to seek shade during lunch break, judging by the litter inside the tree line. The fence,
which is only hogwire fence, is trampled down in some places. This cemetery desperately needs protection and major
tree removal and underbrushing. Descendants of these people are urged to take steps to protect it. The phone number
of the Gargiulo Company, on whose land the cemetery is located, is 850-875-0844 and 850-627-2106 in Quincy, FL.
