      Graves, Marked - There were 9 marked graves counted in this cemetery in the 1970s survey. A monument listing 8 persons was erected in modern times; burials were also listed in the notes by Mary Andrews Brooke.

      Status - In the 1970s the cemetery was described as being "behind the house by a big cherry tree. There is an old well and remains of a house foundation. The slave cemetery is in the front yard under a flower bed." Mary Andrews Brooke noted: "Archibald purchased the Justice [possibly Justus] plantation on the old Pittsboro-Hillsborough Rd. The house was constructed of logs, two story and had glass windows. It was considered the finest house in that area. There were barns for the cows, sheep & horses, besides the many cleared acres for crops & grazing, as well as ample housing for his slaves." In 2006 the old house and house remains were gone and a new home had been constructed on the property. It is not known where the slave cemetery might have been. The cemetery is maintained by the descendants, but has vegetation growth. This cemetery is also known as the Andrews-Justice cemetery.
