Solomon Frister, a dark-eyed, dark-complected farmhand from northern Pennsylvania, enlisted in the United States Colored Troops when he was 26 years old.

He served as a private, and later a corporal in the Civil War alongside thousands of African American men, many of whom had once been enslaved. And when the war was over, he eventually found his way to Tennessee.

He is said to have attended Fisk University, to have gotten married several times, to have raised many children, working as an engineer, a shoemaker and a carpenter, while also serving as a minister of the gospel.

Frister is believed to be buried here, in the neglected overgrowth of Mount Ararat, the first African American cemetery in Middle Tennessee.

But the grounds are gated and locked, and not many markers are left now. Most have sunk or have fallen over.
