362    SHERMAN CEMETERY (Wingate Creek Rd)

      Location - in the Shelton Hills area off Hwy 158 at Wingate Creek Rd.

      Coordinates: 36d 19m 18.5s N; 78d 43m 15.6s W Click here for Google maps

      Directions: Drive toward Berea on Hwy 158W. Turn right into Shelton Hills. Between the 2nd and 3rd old roadbeds turn right nearer the 3rd roadbed and go straight up the hill. The cemetery is on the top of the hill beside the old roadbed.

      There are lots of fieldstones and depressions scattered over a large area here but only one grave- stone found. There's lots of periwinkle also. A tree has fallen on the only marker (Hannah) knocking it over. The writing looks like it was carved using a stencil making it very hard to
      read. WPA records list no birth date and the death date as listed. Dates as reserached by Chotsey Winborne in 2015.

      Hannah's stone was discovered buried in soil by Clyde Hicks, the GGGrandson of Hannah. His son Roger Hicks and Clyde Hicks repaired and reset the stone, which is next to the John Sherman home place. Picture of Hannah's marker by Clyde Hicks in September 2015.
