    Liked your short film.

    My Great Grandfather, Edward Cook is buried in Oberlin Village Cemetery. My family is involved in tracking down our ancestors and a few months ago discovered that our relative is buried there. He was a Union soldier headquartered at Fort MacAteer, Texas fighting in the Indian Wars. Fort MacAteer was a military site where “colored” soldiers were stationed.

    Members of my family, involved in this research hoped to travel to North Carolina from Pennsylvania to visit the cemetery.

    The website above is where my blog, “The Underground Railroad”is posted. My blogger’s name is “Granny”.

    The email address is for inquiries concerning our family.

    Yours in the struggle—
