MCCOY SLAVE CEMETERY (1840's-1880's), east side of McCoy Rd. and south of Gar Creek, Charlotte, NC, Mecklenburg County. On the Cemetery marker, the family of the slave owner express their devotion to two slaves, "Uncle Jim" and "Aunt Lizzie (Lizzie McCoy, who helped raise Albert McCoy's children)." Some of Lizzie McCoy's descendants are buried here. Slavery was a very personal institution, and there were instances when strong personal bonds developed between slave owners and their slaves.
