Rye resident Donna Seward looks at the tombstones in the African-American cemetery adjacent to the Greenwood Union Cemetery, where she has members of her family; the Brown family, buried, after a Memorial Day ceremony, May 28, 2011 in Rye. It is believed that 119 African-Americans are buried at the cemetery, including 22 veterans. In 2010 the Town of Rye formed an Ad Hoc Committee, made up of representatives from the town, the NAACP, Building Community Bridges and the American Legion Post #93, to help restore the town-owned cemetery.
