219    BIVINS FAMILY CEMETERY

      Coordinates: 35d 55m 07.8s N; 79d 11m 56.9s W Click here for Google maps

      Survey - Mary Claire Engstrom and Mr. and Mrs. Shelton Ray surveyed this cemetery on October 4, 1976. Milton Forsyth visited the site on 3 Mar 2006 through the courtesy of Mr. Shelton L. Ray, the landowner, and provided an update and photographs. See 1976 notes.

      Graves - The cemetery is about 85 ft. in diameter on a wooded rise in the field. There are perhaps 25 graves in 5 or 6 rows with some deep depressions; white quartz stones and softer soapstone mark some of the graves. College initiation ceremonies here one night in the 1970s displaced the 3 Bivins tombstones.
