Cedar Grove, Orange County, North Carolina

Lat: 36° 12' 12"N, Lon: 79° 09' 01"W

Contributed by Ellen Kerley, May 03, 2004 [family2808@hotmail.com]. Total records = 50.

In Central Cedar Grove Township, on new Hwy 86 North, 2 mi north of Cedar Grove School at the junction of Hwy 86 with Hawkins Road (SR #1508). Brick church on the left hand side of the road with woods and cemetery adjacent.

This cemetery was established in 1957 by the Five Forks Baptist church. It is a very well maintained cemetery, and still active.

First survey done in 1974, taken from church records and tombstones. I have completed this survey in Aug of 2003, using a digital camera, taking a photo of all existing and legible markers or tombstones.

What makes us Different?

Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
