Britt Family Cemetery #2
Wake County, North Carolina

Neils Branch Road, Wake County, NC

Lat: 35°38'37"N, Lon: 78°37'30"W

Contributed by Shirley Olson, Mar 16, 2002 [shirley32olson@yahoo.com]. Total records = 8.

From Raleigh Beltline take 401 S. (Exit # 298) to SR. 1010, turn left and go 4.9 miles to a left turn onto Neils Branch Rd, a dirt road. Go .04 miles on Neils Branch Rd., don't get discouraged. Pull over where another dirt road branches, there is a parking spot on the side of the roads.

A family cemetery. About 100 feet on the left side of Neils Branch Road a low cement block wall is visible, 2 large magnolia trees are within the walls, and a small group of tombstones.

As usual in Wake County, a large subdivision is under way in this rural area dotted with small horse farms. A cul de sac is staked out that will put this cemetery in back of a home site.

The cemetery is in fairly good condition, all the tombstones except one is clearly readable. There is undergrowth and small trees that are not yet a hindrance.

I surveyed this cemetery on Mar15, 2002.
