      NOTE 1980: Only one of an unknown number of graves still has a marker (dated 1947) enclosed by a concrete block wall. Thought to be a black cemetery. Canvassed by Jean Anderson (1980) who recorded two burials.

      NOTE 2008: In very poor state. Only one headstone upright. More burials evident and additional headstones possibly hidden by deep undergrowth. Graveyard stands on land that was formerly owned by Duke University (1940s), J.R. Turnage (1910s-1930s), Blacknall (1900s) and Parker Fuller (1870s-1900s) an African American farmer who owned 37 acres between the NCRR and today's Erwin road. The cemetery was most likely started by the Fullers and the graves identified below are all from families who lived in the Hickstown area. Note several identical headstone designs as those found in the Geer cemetery. The cemetery ownership is currently listed as unknown as the current surrounding landowner surrendered claim to it in the 1950s.

      Mitch Fraas pulled all the extant death certificates for the marked graves and found the cemetery described as the "Fuller cemetery" and also discovered that everyone buried there is a relative of Parker Fuller - the landowner of the area in the 19th century.

      Surveyed by Mitch Fraas in June 2008 who recorded four burials. Pictures provided by Mitch Hass.
