254    GOOCH FAMILY (Enon Rd)

      Location - 150 yards off the Enon Road between Enon Baptist Church and the Tar River.

      Coordinates: 36d 16m 37.7s N; 78d 41m 16.7s W Click here for Google maps

      Directions: From the intersection of Hwy 158 W and Enon Rd. in Oxford, take Enon Rd. west for 4.8 miles. Just before the 2nd Lucy Averette Rd. there is a path on the right going into the woods. The cemetery is up the path 150 yards. It is enclosed in a wrought iron fence that is in fair condition. The cemetery is well maintained and preserved.

      This family graveyard was used from 1822 to about 1890. In addition to the 17 tombstones, there are at least 11 other unmarked burial places. The yard is surrounded by an iron fence that has been damaged over time. Restoration and cleaning of the stones was undertaken professionally in 2004 and 2005. Some stones are not contemporary with the burial. Family papers show that Amos Gooch (1802-1885) purchased 2 or 3 sets of tombstones, 3 ft. high and 12 in. wide from someone named Raby L. in 1877, probably to replace his parent's stones. Daniel Gooch's death date is not complete on his stone and it is believed that this replaces one that was heavily worn, but a death date survives from a transcript of a family Bible. The DAR did an incomplete survey of the graveyard.

      Surveyed by J. Daniel Mahar in 2001.
      Re-visited for the Granville County Genealogy Society by Joey and Taylor Dickerson and Mildred Goss, April 2010.
