Contributed by Shirley Olson, Mar 19, 2001 [firstname.lastname@example.org]. Total records = 8.Directions: From the Raleigh Beltline (Hwy 440) take exit #13 East, (Hwy 64 E), Approximately 1/2 Mile.
This is a busy 4 lane divided highway. On the left side of the road, going east, you will see a Kroger Store, a K-Mart Store and closest to the road, a bread outlet and a gas station. These are the landmarks to guide you to this small cemetery.
They are all located in Wilders Grove Plaza, a shopping center bounded on the left by Corporation Pkwy, and on the right by New Hope Road. There is a cross-over to get into the shopping center, but if you miss it, take the next left turn at New Hope Road and enter from there.
Next to the Gas Station-Minimart, is this remarkably well preserved cemetery. There are 3 tombstones and 5 tombs, all in good condition.
I transcribed this from the tombstones on Feb 14, 2002.- Shirley Olson
