It is on road 1001 just North of intersection where road 1327 joins 1001, about halfway to Daly's Chapel off to the right in the thick woods about 300 meters. Road 1327 ends at Hwy 70, just East of LaGrange.
In woods between Daly's Chapel and where the old Francis Roland Hodges' home burned, on land now belonging to decendants of Francis Roland Hodges, Jr., near The Old Hardison Crossroads close to LaGrange, Lenoir County, N.C.
In 1990, my daughter and I finally located this forsaken cemetery way back in the woods with no road whatsoever to it where my great grandfather Robert Daly was buried in an un-marked grave in 1900. His brother William and his second wife, Julia are there. William's son John T. Daly and wife's name are on an obelisk therein about 10 feet high, and there is an iron fence with 'Daly' on the gate.
Yesterday, Mar 25, 2002, I went back and it was so grown up, I almost never located it. It hasn't been touched since I went there in 1990.
At one time William owned a huge amount of land there, his son John T. donated land where Daly's Chapel is. Just a few years back there was still over 1,200 acreas left of the original farm. I remain shocked at the condition this cemetery has remained in, especially since the land has remained in the hands of William's decendants.
Submitted in the name of my Great grandfather Robert Daly.- George Wetherington
