324    HARRIS - BLACKLEY FAMILIES (Gray Rock Rd)

      Location - off Gray Rock Rd about 2 miles east of Gray Rock Methodist Church.

      Coordinates: 36d 11m 19.5s N; 78d 31m 16.9s W Click here for Google maps

      Directions: From Oxford drive toward Wilton on Hwy 96S. Turn left on Fairport Rd. then right on Cannady Mill Rd. then left on Gray Rock Rd. Drive 1.5 miles past Gray Rock Methodist Church and turn right on a lane then right to a patch of woods on the right. The cemetery is in these woods not far from the highway.

      This old cemetery is a mess. Scattered haphazard over a large wooded area, it consists of professional grave stones, home made markers and field stones. The inscriptions are hard to read for the most part. There are many depressions and low ground cover makes walking difficult. There are obviously more graves here than listed.

      Some information in the listing came from the Richard H. Thornton Library placed there in 1999. It was felt useful to include here, as so many of the markers had initials.
