Williams Cemetery
Oakview, Wake County, North Carolina

Lat: 35°41'46"N, Lon: 78°33'28"W

Contributed by Shirley Olson, Mar 03, 2004 [shirley32olson@yahoo.com]. Total records = 6.

From the intersection of Poole Rd. and Hwy 440, Raleigh, go 2/10 mi. east on Poole Rd. to the traffic light at Carya Dr., which is the entrance to Wake County Office Park Complex. Go 3/10 mi. on Carya Dr., following the signs to "Historic Oakview." Park near the museum, and walk 1/10 mi to the Cotton Gin House. The cemetery is beside the building.

This small family cemetery is part of the restored "Oakview." Originally it was the home of the Williams family and later home to a number of prominent Wake County families. Only Benton and Burchett Williams have markers on their graves. There are several small tablets marked "grave", with no names. In the front of the cemetery is a monument with six names, seen below.

I visited the cemetery and transcribed from the monument and tombstones on Mar 02, 2004.
