The Merrit (AKA Merrick Cemetery) was established in the early 1900s by the Borgnemouth Realty Company for African American families who had been burying their dead in slave cemeteries on nearby plantations.

Currently, it is popular to put grave info on plexiglass and to mount that on the tomb.
Older grave markers are mixed in among the larger tombs.
