      This abandoned and vandalized cemetery has at least 20 graves, about half of which have some kind of marker. Canvassed by Doris Tilley and Robin and Matt Winfree (1977). Identities of the buried were obtained from members of the Couch family. Research determined that in early 1924, Norwood Couch had the remains of his five deceased children disinterred and moved to Maplewood Cemetery. Research also determined the last burial in this Couch cemetery was February 17, 1912. Through efforts spearheaded by Doris Tilley, this cemetery was formally removed from ownership of the developer and designated an inactive cemetery (May 23, 1978) by the Durham County Commissioners. According to then-Associate Attorney General for the State of North Carolina, Lucien Capone III, this action by Durham County was a 'first' in the State: the locating, surveying, and platting of a 'lost' cemetery owned by a developer and subject to development and placing title to such land with those buried there and their heirs to 'retain certain rights, in the nature of an easement, including ingress and egress, the right to repair, beautify and protect, and the right to erect markers in the cemetery.'
