Apex Methodist Cemetery
Wake County, North Carolina
Lat: 35° 43' 57"N, Lon: 78° 51' 11"W
Contributed by Shirley Olson, Aug 22, 2005 [firstname.lastname@example.org]. Total records = 22.
From the intersection of Center St. (SR 1010) and N. Salem St. (SR 1011) go south on N. Salem St. 1/10 mile to a right turn onto Saunders St., go 1/10 mile on Saunders St. to the cemetery on the north side of the street. There is a place to park and a flight of stairs constructed of railroad ties lead up a hillside to the cemetery.
This cemetery is in good condition and very secluded. The church that formerly stood in front of the cemetery (the parking area) is completely gone. The cemetery is no longer in use. Wake County records show the owner as Apex ME Church Cemetery, and the area as .33 acres.
I walked the cemetery on Aug 17, 2005 and recorded all that was readable from existing tombstones and markers.
