This cemetery is located on the east edge of Dodd City located on Hwy 56. It is next to the Dodd City Cemetery. This is an African American Cemetery and nearby stood St. Marks Church and the school for the children. This Baptist Church was founded in 1882 in the neighborhood of the Vannoy Cemetery, east of where it was moved later on the east side of Dodd City. Early members were, Tob and Dave Johnson, Rev. Theodore Johnson, J.W. Woodward (Woodard), D.W. Holland and others.

Mrs. Vivian Caldwell deeded the land for the Church in 1893. The church building is no longer there. The school that served the children was located just south of the church site.
