At the intersection of Birchleaf Drive and Penny Road (SR 1379), turn right onto Penny Road for a very short distance (maybe 1/8 mile), you will see the cemetery on the right or south side of the road.
Only one grave is located in the side yard of the beautifully preserved frame house built by Jesse Wood Penny and his wife, Lillian Franks Penny in 1898. Both Penny and Franks family names are interwoven in the history of Wake County. The property is private and may not be accessed without permission from the owners.
I visited this burial site and recorded from headstone on Nov 29, 2003.
