Contributed by Shirley Olson, Jul 17, 2004 [email@example.com]. Total records = 6.From Hwy. 401, Fuquay Varina, take 55 south (towards Holly Springs)3 miles to Old Adams Rd. Turn right on Old Adams, (it only runs in one direction) and go 4/10 mi. to the end of the paved road which stops in front of 5104 Old Adams Rd. (N 35°37'46.7" W 78°48'57.1") You can continue by car on the dirt road but the road is rough with a deep puddle near the start. Go 1/10 mi. up the dirt road, which curves around a bean field, and on the left, sitting 25-30 feet off the road, is the cemetery.
This is an abandoned cemetery no longer in use and in a state of great disrepair. Of the 14 visibly marked graves only six markers are readable. There is one headstone, the rest are funeral home markers and most of these are so damaged by weather they can not be read. If the headstone did not exist the cemetery would be completely obscured by undergrowth and trees.
This cemetery was located from information offered by Mr. Merlin Prince, of Prince FH., and is not noted on any maps.
