Wake County, North Carolina

Lat: 35°42'57"N, Lon: 78°48'41"W

Contributed by Shirley Olson, July 29, 2001 [shirley32olson@yahoo.com]. Total records = 14.

From Raleigh, take Hwy 64 and US. 1 (the beltline) towards Sanford. Exit on 1010 Rd. and go a short distance east (left) to the intersection of Penny Rd. and 1010 Rd. Angle to the left onto Penny Rd., the cemetery is right there.

Cemetery was physically surveyed by Shirley Olson & Gordon Olson in July of 2001, with a visit to the cemetery, reading all the headstones.

This is a tiny cemetery that used to be way out in the country and now is in the middle of intense growth.

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.
