Sue Gambrell grew up near Port Tampa. She lives in Mississippi now and sent me an e-mail with this interesting information:
"It was interesting to see about the Black cemetery at Port Tampa. When I was about 6 yrs old they came to survey for MacDill Field(now MacDill AFB). They took our front yard to make Dale Mabry Hwy and we were real close to the gate there. Anway, somehow when they were staking it out we walked behind our place close to where Manhatten gate was and there was remnants of a cemetery there-I remember seeing an infant in a little white dress that had been unearthed and my Mother saying it was a Black cemetery there. I do not know if it was taken into the base or not..."
