Mrs. V. grew up in the town of Seward. She took me for a tour of the town she remembers. Seward was once segregated with blacks being unable to live on Mason Street. She showed me the house she grew up in, the spot of her grandparent’s house which burned down years ago, the location of the grocery store, an old school, the building that was once the post office, and an old church that had completely fallen in. While little remains of Seward today, her memories remain firmly connected to the town that her family grew up in. Her parents were a part of the Seward Memorial Cemetery Association and Mrs. V. has continued the family tradition. Seward Memorial (Free Will) Cemetery was created as an African American Cemetery for the Free Will Baptist Church, across the street from the Seward Cemetery. Over time, another section was added on the other side of a wood fence. Today the Seward Memorial Cemetery is operated by a non-profit board. Like many of the 90 cemeteries in Logan County the cemetery itself is showing its age as time has taken its toll.
