This abandoned cemetery became visible recently when a field was cleared for future development. Located on Holly Springs Rd, Raleigh NC, across the road from houses numbered 6608 and 6604, the estimated street address is 6607 Holly Springs Rd.

Directions from Raleigh: Take the beltline (440) west to to the U.S. 1 and Hwy. 64 exit, which is Tryon Road (SR 1009) if you go east. Go east on Tryon Road, cross Kildaire Farm Road (1300), continue east, cross the Cary Parkway (3397) and the next major intersection and traffic light will be at Holly Springs Road (SR 1152). Turn right and perhaps a half mile will bring you to this small collection of tombstones on your left, well back from the road.

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.
