      Directions: From intersection of Poplar Springs Road and Mountain Park Road drive south on Poplar Springs Road for 1.3 miles. The cemetery was in the front yard of a log house located on the left side of the road.

      This cemetery was destroyed in the early 1980's when the location was converted into a yard. The current owner of the property is Roger Williams and wife. He welcomed the identification and recording of the graveyard location even though there is no evidence of the graveyard now.
      According to Emily Southard, five people were buried in the graveyard - there is a memorial stone to those people in the Zephyr - Gum Orchard Cemetery placed there by Emily Southard. Christley and Margaret Snow Willey, through their 10 children, were the ancestors of the Willey families of Zephyr Community and beyond in Surry County.

      Surveyed and photographed by Jack Luffman on Aprril 19, 2010. Information supplied by Emily Southard, lifelong resident of the community who is in her eighties.
