      The cemetery is known as the Powell Cemetery. It was perhaps the first cemetery of ancestors and/or descendants of Benjamin H. Powell Sr and his wife Jimmie Ann Jordan, who were married 5 Jan 1850 in Cumberland County, NC. There was evidence of at least 5-6 graves, although only one grave was legible. The rest were field stones and some had sunken graves with significant overgrowth.
