106    CARR, JOHN FAMILY CEMETERY (PROB. BEF. 1818)

      Location - On the Orange Grove Road (SR #1006), 1-1/2 miles southwestward from Crossroads Baptist Church on the west side of the road, some 50 feet from the road in a grove of pines (visible from the road in the winter).

      Coordinates: 36d 00m 57.0s N; 79d 09m 14.0s W Click here for Google maps

      Survey - This cemetery was surveyed on December 23, 1973. Milton Forsyth visited and photographed the site in February 2005.

      Graves, Marked - There were 7 stones and 9 graves.

      Status [2005] - The unkempt 25' X 42' family cemetery, almost certainly antedating 1818, was once enclosed by a wire fence (fallen in 1973) attached to posts which in 1973 had evidently been partially burned in a forest fire and were mostly fallen. The seven markers in the two rows of graves in the cemetery were recent in 1973 and all appear to be of the same date. A large Carr marker, bearing the names of 4 John Carrs and valuable genealogical information, had fallen in 1973 but in 2005 was upright. It apparently designates only one grave, that of John Wesley Carr, d. 1889. It seems possible that one of the several depressions may be the grave of John Carr 3rd.
