      Coordinates: 35d 46m 31.0s N; 78d 47m 18.0s W Click here for Google maps

      Surveyed by Shirley Olson in February 13, 2002.

      Directions: From Interstate 40, west of Raleigh, take Exit # 287, the N. Harrison Avenue exit, (SR 1652) and go south about 2 miles to Chatham St. At the traffic light jog left on Chatham St. (SR 1616) and turn right (south) on Academy St., at the next traffic light. About mile down the road it will dead end at Cary Elementary School. A sign at the traffic light points left to continue south on Kildaire Farm Rd., (SR 1300) about mile to a traffic light at the intersection of W. Cornwall Rd. Turn right and drive a short distance. On the right is the cemetery, at the intersection of Pond Rd., and W. Cornwall Rd.

      The sign in front of the cemetery proclaims it is the property of Cary 1st United Church of Christ, 1109 Evans Rd., Cary, NC, 27513, Tel. # 467- 1053. This is a cemetery that is still in use with space for additional burials. The cemetery is in a state of disarray, with graves scattered here and there, many unmarked graves and many graves with cast concrete slabs with no names inscribed. Many stones are broken and overturned and general signs of serious neglect are rampant.

      It is recommended to anyone interested in this cemetery that they read "Both Sides of the Tracks II, Recollections of Cary, NC, 1860-2000", published in 2001, written by Ella Arrington Williams-Vinson. Many photographs of the cemetery tombstones are included as well as the history of those buried here. It is a very vauable aid to those researching these graves. Sallie E. Jones is chairman of the Cary Colored Cemetery Committee at the Cary United Church of Christ, 1109 Evans Road, Cary, NC.,
      27513, and has the task of identifying each grave site. Many of the graves do not have tombstones. Questions may be addressed to her, care of the church.

      Day, "In memory of the George Washington Day Family, Mary Harris, Reuben, Jessie, Pattie, Alexander, Nora, Ida, Nancy Ann, George, Mary" " Presented by IRA" (This is a homemade slab with
      these names inscribed by hand. It is not clear if this is a mass grave or if they are buried in unmarked graves with only this for a marker)
