Loving Care Cemetery (Mount Zion Cemetery)
Dover, Hillsborough County, Florida

Lat: 28 01' 43"N, Lon: 82 18' 39"W

Contributed by Madlyn Leavine, Nov 17, 2003 [madsplace@ij.net]. Total records = 45.

In Dover go east on I-4 to SRD 579, turn north onto 579 to Bessie Dix Road. Turn left (east) on Bessie Dix Road approximately 1/2 mile to cemetery on right.

This African American cemetery began in the early 1900's and had been closed to burials since the late 1970's. It is also known as Mount Zion Cemetery. It is now taken care of by the county of Hillsborough.

This transcription is from when I walked and read all existing headstones in this cemetery on Nov 20, 2003.
