      Survey - Information for this cemetery was provided in December 2006 by Mr. Benjamin Berry Henderson, a family descendant. Photographs 27 December 2006 by Mr. Henderson.

      Graves, Marked - Six of a total of 23 indicated graves are marked with engraved headstones/footstones.

      Graves, Unmarked - Unengraved fieldstones mark 17 graves, possibly including those of the 12 persons as noted below -- 8 family members believed to be buried here and an additional 4 persons possibly buried here.

      Comment - Robert Berry received a Granville Grant for 260 acres in the Lick Creek area on 12 May 1757 (#207). He later acquired 293 acres adjacent to this property on the east (NC State Grants #366, 42:19, 13 Mar 1780). He sold 200 acres of this to his neighbor William Armstrong on 14 Oct 1800 (OC DB 13:330 - Section 2 of the property shown on the plat of the property of William Armstrong at the entry for Cemetery #120). He retained some 93 acres on the east end of his property. He additionally acquired 247 acres adjacent to his property on the south from the Heirs of Patrick Rutherford (OC DB 4:415, 2 Mar 1787), so his property holdings along Lick Creek amounted to at least 600 acres. His plantation was named Fiddleton and was still identified on the 1890 Map of Orange County.

      Note - A family reunion of over 100 of the descendants of Robert and Elizabeth Cate Berry was held in July 2007. The event was organized by Mr. Henderson and included a visit to the cemetery and to the nearby site of the original Berry home where the chimney, with a date of 1766 on it, still stands. An article on the reunion is in the August 1, 2007 edition of "The News of Orange County" from Hillsborough, NC.
