      Coordinates: 36d 19m 55.0s N; 78d 45m 39.9s W Click here for Google maps

      Directions: Take Hwy 158W past Berea; turn left on Days Mill Rd; drive 0.2 miles; turn right at an old home site and follow the edge of the woods; bear left onto a path and the cemetery is on left in edge of woods. This site is behind Harris Rest Home, is owned by the Harris family, and permission must be obtained.

      This cemetery hasn't been used in 149 years. It is located in the edge of the woods. It had a brick wall about a foot wide and several feet high all around it. Most of the wall has crumbled. All of the stones except one were flat markers. They are either broken and/or sunken in and partially buried in forest debris. One is an obelisk shaped upright field stone with just initials JLW on it.

      Thanks to Keith Williams, pastor of Mount Zion Baptist Church, for his time in searching for this cemetery, and finally finding it!
