Directions: From Angier turn east on Hwy #210 and go 7.6 miles to a cotton field on your right. There is a driveway. Drive in about 100 ft. to the remains of a family cemetery. town of Coats was named for this family.

Of the 6 people thought to be buried here, only 2 headstones remain. The ruins of an Antebellum farmhouse sit another 100 feet back and all are surrounded by cotton fields. The nearby town of Coats was named for this family.

I walked and recorded this cemetery on Feb 07, 2003.

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.
