      Directions: From intersection of NC Hwy 268 and US Hwy 601 (Fairview Crossroads), go west on Hwy 268 abt 3.8 miles (or just past Little Richmond Baptist Church) and turn right on Martin Rd (SR 1120). Then go to the end of the road to a residence on the right at 178 Martin Rd. The land owner's name is on a small mail box in front of the house. The cemetery is inside a cow pasture abt 100 yards north of the residence. No marked stones, just many rock markers. Land owner says the cemetery has always been called the Whitaker Cemetery for the last two generations. The cemetery is reportedly the family plot for Isaiah Whitaker and his wife Sallie Elizabeth Smith.
