Contributed by Shirley Olson, May 05, 2002, last edited Mar 06, 2006. [shirley32olson@yahoo.com]. Total records = 46.

Take Hillsborough Street west to the intersection of Blue Ridge Rd. (SR 1670) Turn right onto Blue Ridge Rd and go about 2 miles to the intersection of Duraleigh Rd. and Blue Ridge, bear right at the traffic light, staying on Blue Ridge Rd. about one more mile, crossing Glen Eden. About 1/2 mile further, on the right side of the road a simple white sign marks "Tyson Cemetery" just before Townedge Ct. You can pull into a grassy spot off the busy road to park. A chain link locked fence surrounds the cemetery limiting access.

The owner of the cemetery is listed on Wake County land records as Nathan Tyson. It is in good condition, about 1/2 acre in size.

I have transcribed from tombstones readings taken on May 8, 2002.
