      Burial survey recorded by Bob Carter of Greensboro, NC on 30 Oct 2014.

      The cemetery name was initially shown by John Edwards as the Ashburn Family Cemetery, but there were no visible markers or historical evidence for Ashburn family members. The only graves found were that of William O. Shackelford and his wife Louisa "Luisey" W. Pringle. There is a large pile of field stones, some of which could have been burial markers although some of them are clearly too large to have been for graves.
