      This small family cemetery was found by Earl Flannery while using a metal detector. He recognized it as the proper location for a headstone that had been left on his driveway in April 2004 by a prankster. He also realized that another headstone which had been dropped off at Wendy's Restaurant in Cary about the same time and had been the subject of a widespread attempt to return it to it's rightful location belonged in this cemetery. Thanks to Mr. Flannery and the Cary Police Dept. which has been storing the headstone for 2 years there is a happy ending to this tale.

      No directions are provided other than the co-ordinates. The cemetery is on land owned by the city of Raleigh, it is an abandoned cemetery, no parking, difficult access, no trail.

      There is a depression that appears to be another, but unmarked, grave.
