      Location - In Southern Eno Township west of University Station Rd (SR #1712) in a trailer park with an entrance 0.3 mi. south of the Hwy US 70 Bypass.

      Also referred to as the Strayhorn-Borland Family Cemetery.

      Survey - This cemetery was surveyed November 29, 1974. Margaret Jones of the Orange County Environment & Resource Conservation Department and Milton Forsyth visited the site on January 26, 2006 and provided the photograph and site update.

      Graves, Marked - There were 9 marked stones.

      Graves, Unmarked - There were probably 9 rows of unmarked graves.

      Status [2006] - In 1974 the site was described as: "Periwinkle, very large dead trees, small cedars and pines. Some years ago the trailer camp encroached on the cemetery and some graves were destroyed." By 1984 the site had been severely desecrated and the Orange County Health Department worked with the trailer park owner to remedy the situation. In April 1991 the monument was installed and in 1992 the septic system was installed with permission of the county. The original gravestones appear to have been lost, leaving the memorial monument to mark the site of this old family cemetery.
