      Providence Baptist Church Cemetery is located on NC 49 approximately 2 miles north of Roxboro. The oldest part of the cemetery is on the north side of the educational building which stands now and was built in 1955. This building is on the site where the first church was built in 1862. According to the church records, the first pastor, Rev. William Ennis Oakley, was the first one to be buried in the cemetery. He was born April 3 1805 and died Sept 7 1876. No doubt there are some earlier graves but no markers exist as proof. The cemetery on the west side of the educational building is the next oldest. The third cemetery is on the other side of the old road leading from Roxboro to South Boston Va.. The oldest grave in this area is 1918.

      In 1961 Longhurst Cotton Mill deeded the private cemetery joining the church cemetery to the church. This portion of the cemetery is located off of Providence Road. The Dunn cemetery which is joined to the Longhurst Cotton Mill cemetery is not included in this list below at this time. Several graves were moved to Providence Cemetery in April 1977, when CP&L constructed Mayo Lake as part of the construction of the Mayo Power Plant. Even though all of the graves appear to be associated with the Providence Cemetery, only 3 are kept up by the church, the Dunn Cemetery and Old Longhurst cotton mill cemetery are kept up by family members. At the present time a person has to be member of Providence Baptist Church to obtain a cemetery lot in the church portion and some of the Longhurst Cotton Mill Area. Most of the Longhurst Cotton Mill Area and the Dunn Cemetery are owned by family members who purchased them from the Cotton Mill before 1961. But to me, all of these cemeteries are collectively known as the Providence Cemetery.
