I do not know of many African Americans who are buried in the Granary Burying Ground in Boston. The city's free black community was centered in the North End, so many of the known graves are in Copp's Hill. One of the few exceptions is Frank, a slave belonging to John Hancock, who is buried at the foot of Hancock's monument, near the Hancock family tomb on the southwest side of the graveyard.
