      Directions: from the junction of Blue Ridge Rd. and Duraleigh Rd., Raleigh: Take Edwards Mill Rd. northeast (toward Hwy. 70). Go through the stop light at the shopping center and turn left onto Laurel Hills Rd. Take the first right onto Old Post Rd. You will go into a slight curve and then see Lantern Place intersecting on the right. Park on Old Post Rd. just past the intersection. There is a high wooded area across the road just before 3601 Old Post Rd. That is the cemetery location. You may park on the shoulder of Old Post Road and climb the 12' slope of the road bank or access it through the driveway at 3601 Old Post Road. It is located in the front yard. It is about 30'X30' in size and needs maintenance at this time.

      Surveyed by Shirley Olson in September 2002. Surveyed by Donna Bradbury and Grady Doyle on 28 January 2012.

      This is an abandoned family cemetery, rather overgrown with brush, in an established neighborhood. My thanks to Marie Cooke for locating the cemetery. Pictures by Marie Cooke in 2006.

      Note, it is believed that there are more unmarked graves here.
