      Please do not copy this data and post to other sites as if this was your own research. Although births and deaths are not copyrighted since they are facts, genealogy integrity suggests you give reference sources where you obtained the data (http://cemeterycensus.com/nc/surr/index.htm) and the source provider. All photos provided "ARE" copyrighted and you cannot copy and post to other sites or use them in other ways without the owner's permission.

      This was a full and complete survey of burials as found. The survey started at the NE corner of cemetery just beyond the power pole near Turkey Ford Road, and worked in a zig-zag fashion by rows back toward the church.

      Additional information is provided on burials such as spelling out their actual names versus initials, or actual month/day/year of birth or death, if only the year was shown, and/or maiden names of spouses and parents (if known). This data was collected from birth, marriage, and death records, as well as some obituaries where they could be found. A big thanks is owed to Linda Marion, Judy Cardwell and Sherry Poindexter for providing data and facts on family relationships. If you notice any errors, send an email to Bob Carter and he will correct it.
