      Location - from Raleigh, drive north on US-1 North (Capitol Blvd) passing under the interchange with I-540 and turn left on Greshams Lake Road. Take Greshams Lake road about 1.5 miles to Harps Mill Rd. Turn right on Harps Mill and then take the second left at Goudy Dr. Park at the end of the street (1 block). The cemetery is directly behind the house on the left. There is a path through the trees along the edge of the house which is a deeded access to the cemetery.

      Surveyed by Barbara Allen in March 2004.

      This is a small family cemetery which appears to no longer be in use, and is now surrounded on three sides by a subdivision. It is well kept and surrounded by a low fence. The Nichols family has owned land near here for many years, and the building that used to house Nichols Grocery still stands a few blocks away.

      There are at least 28 graves in this cemetery, but only three have engraved headstones. Some of the others have un-engraved headstones, rock or metal markers or are obvious depressions.

      Based on some research Barbara Allen did for the two Nichols men: according to military records, R. W. Nichols enlisted as a private in Company I, 35th North Carolina Infantry on May 6, 1863 and died of disease on June 15, 1863. Terry Nichols did not die in the state of North Carolina. It is possible that he was killed in Korea, but can neither prove or disprove that. If someone has information on what happened to him, please let us know and we will update this posting.
