      Surveyed by Shirley Olson on June 12, 2006. Another view of cemetery. Photos of cemetery by Shirley Olson in June 2006.

      Directions: from the intersection of Blue Ridge Rd., (SR 1664) and Reedy Creek Rd., (SR 2400) at the traffic light in front of the NC State Museum of Art, turn NW on Reedy Creek Rd. Go exactly 1 mile on Reedy Creek Rd. You will cross Edwards Mill Rd., (SR 2300) at 0.6 mile, and continue on Reedy Creek Rd. which is a gravel road after you cross Edward's Mill Rd. Take a left turn on to State Farm Rd., a dirt road, no SR number, and go 0.1 mile to the cemetery on your right. Behind the cemetery is state property, with a sign "Schenk Forest".

      Park on the side of the road and enter through a gate. This is a pleasant small cemetery, tidy and cared for. There is room for more burials. Located near the burgeoning growth around the RBC Center, (home to the NHL Hurricanes), it is surprisingly untouched and surrounded by green rolling fields. Originally a log cabin church stood next to the cemetery, long since moved and now, no longer a small log cabin church, Mt. Olivet Church is located at 3500 Edward's Mill Rd., about 5 miles away. The cemetery belongs to the church and contains about 0.5 acre.

      My thanks to Beth Medlin and her Grandma, Ms. Louise Hicks, for their kind assistance.
