North Bush Cemetery,Fulton Co New York

I am doing some research on this cemetery, I understand that this cemetery holds some of the first settlers to the county, which include African Americans. The "gage" family is my direct line and the one I am interested in knowing more about.

does anyone have information about the African Americans that lived in this area around this time? Was it common to bury Africans with Whites in the same graveyard? I always thought during these early years that they didnt bury people of different color or reigion together.
