Contributed by Shirley Olson, Sep 07, 2002 [firstname.lastname@example.org]. Total records = 8.Directions from the junction of Blue Ridge Rd. and Duraleigh Rd.,Raleigh: Take Edwards Mill Rd. northeast (toward Hwy.70). Go through the stop light at the shopping center and turn left onto Laurel Hills Rd. Take the first right onto Old Post Rd. You will go into a slight curve and then see Lantern Place intersecting on the right. Park on Old Post Rd. just past the intersection.
There is a high wooded area across the road just before 3601 Old Post Rd. That is the cemetery location. My thanks to Marie Cooke, a Tillie descendant, for locating the cemetery. Marie Cooke says that J.P. Tillie, progenitor of the 2 Tillie children buried here, is buried in an unmarked grave in an unknown location in this cemetery.
This is an abandoned family cemetery, rather overgrown with brush, in an established neighborhood. It is believed there are more graves here than I have accounted for.
