Contributed by Shirley Olson, Oct 04, 2006, last edited May 18, 2007 [email@example.com]. Total records = 11.From the intersection of Knightdale Blvd. (Hwy. # 64 East) & Old Knight Rd. (SR 2049), take Old Knight Rd. which runs northeast. Go .6 mi. to the cemetery on the right, directly across from Knightdale High School. There is no good place to park but there is a shoulder in front of the school where you can park with care.
The cemetery is almost hidden in the woodsy growth and easy to miss. A flight of steps goes up a small incline to the wrought iron enclosed cemetery. An obelisk engraved "Knight" is surrounded by graves. It is neat and tidy, no longer in use, and about 40' X 40" in size.
