Beckwith Cemetery
Chatham County, North Carolina

Lat: 35° 44' 05" N Lon: 78° 59' 06"

Contributed by Shirley Olson, Jun 28, 2002 [shirley32olson@yahoo.com]. Total records = 18.

The cemetery is located approximately 1 mile east of the intersection of Farrington Rd. (SR 1008) and Hwy. 64, referred to as Wilsonville, which is located at the east side of Lake Jordan. The cemetery is on the south side of this divided highway and plainly visible from the highway.

The cemetery is a private family cemetery, no longer in use, located on land owned by the Beckwith family, and maintained by the landowner.

Transcribed from tombstones when I visited the cemetery 17 Jun 2002.

What makes us Different?

Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
