      The Stanfield Family Cemetery is the family cemetery of Jeremiah Bradsher Stanfield and Minerva Catherine Fox Stanfield. It is located west of Roxboro, Person County, North Carolina, on the Leasburg Road (US Route 158).

      Surveyed by William Gail and Phyllis Newton Clayton in 2009.

      The following is a description by a family member 11 October 2009:

      "The stones are not the best to read; rubbings might tell us more. The site is more accessible than originally thought. Thankfully no trees are growing on the graves except a small cedar at W. L. Stanfield's, which may come up easily. The site is covered with kudzu, but easy to remove. The site also is larger than once thought, with room available for more graves. The site was not measured, but it is a good size -- narrow but long (probably around ten feet wide and at least twenty to thirty feet wide. There are several holly trees near the site with one on the other side of W. L. Stanfield's, and two large trees on the outside of the iron fence (one with a big hornet's nest). The graves are within a 36-inch-high iron fence and then surrounded several feet out with a plank fence that surrounds the farm on which the cemetery is located. Horses are kept on this farm. A small, one-person, opening in the fence on the highway side makes entrance easy. The family now living on the farm was very nice when access to the site was requested. They have plans to "clean up" the cemetery. Their farm is beautiful. Only five graves were found. There may be others that are unmarked and under the holly tree and undergrowth. The five graves had headstones and footstones: RWS; JBS; MKS; and WLS. The Rainey Younger Stanfield footstone had no initials."
