      Surveyor - The first survey was taken April 30, 1937 by A. K. Summerlin for the Historical Records Survey of NC. The second survey was taken October 23, 1973 by Mrs. Engstrom. Milton Forsyth photographed all the standing or fallen markers in the cleared area of the cemetery in May 2003. Several of the stones that were apparently present in 1937 now appear to be lost.

      Graves, Marked - In October 1973 there were 81 marked or identified graves, including 27 from the 1937 survey. Total number of graves in the cemetery equals 164.

      Graves, Unmarked - In October 1973 there were a total of 83 unmarked graves, including depressions and rough fieldstones.

      Current Status - Front (south) half of cemetery (white) in good condition; rear (north) portion (black) is derelict with a heavy mat of periwinkle or ivy, fallen trees and deep grave depressions.
