From the intersection of Main St. (Hwy. 55) and Holly Springs Rd., (SR.1152), in Holly Springs, turn west at the traffic light onto New Hill Rd. (SR. 1152) a continuation of Holly Springs Rd., but with a name change. Drive about 1 1/2 miles to where the road divides, bear right onto Holly Springs-Apex Rd. (SR. 1153) and go about 3/4 of a mile to the cemetery on the right side of the road. There is a little driveway to pull in off the road.

Off the beaten path for most Wake County dwellers, this little private cemetery is located on Old Holly Springs-Apex Rd., (SR. 1153), near a landfill and near the Wake County Shooting Range.

Bennet Holland Family Cemetery is the name noted in a will dated 1888, by the son of Bennet Holland, for this cemetery. At the present time this cemetery is owned and maintained by Drew Holland and family.

Of late much development has occurred in this once sleepy area. A predominantly African American neighborhood is in the midst of dramatic change.

I recorded this cemetery on 13 May 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.
