      This maintained and in use cemetery has 53 legibly marked and 12 unmarked graves. Canvassed by Jean Anderson (1980). This cemetery was originally a full acre. Some markers were stones left over from the building of Duke University. Two sisters (believed to be Eliza and Sarah Pool) each gave half an acre from their adjoining land to form the cemetery. Photographed by Allen Dew in March 2003.
