Nessly Chapel Update

According to the Find-A-Grave site on Nessly Chapel Cemetery, one story about the 20-25 unknown dead deals with the accidental sinking of a steam ship near Chester, WV.  There were many slave in the bottom deck of the ship, all of which died.  Confirmation of this event is unavailable at this time, but it does give us something else to look for.  If we find anything else, we will keep you informed.  This information was found by our newest crew member, Jackson!  Thank you Jackson!  Keep up the great work!
