      Located in the village of Clemmons, behind 3728 Clemmons Road, on Hwy 158, and between the Clemmons United Methodist Church building and the former home of Peter Clemmons. This 40 X 120 cemetery, which was formerly referred to as Crott's Yard or Sprinkle's Back Yard, and having been abandoned and overgrown for many years, was cleaned up through the efforts of Clemmons historian, Carl G Monson of the Clemmons United Methodist Church. There is no sign identifying this cemetery.
