      It should be called the John Taylor Cemetery since he was the first land owner. DOT pushed a road through the center of the cemetery in the 1960's after it was sold from family ownership. The property is now owned by the NC Justice Department because it lies just feet way from a pre Columbian Indian village that was dug several years ago with no regard for the cemetery.

      The farmer that is working the fields broke the stone of Sarah Taylor Gaither, wife of Zachariah Gaither, while pushing brush out of the field. Just a note, the Elijah Gaither who's stone is down and broken is the great grandfather of Bill Gaither the Gospel singer.

      Surveyed and photographed by Larry Campbell January 31, 2011.
