At the intersection of Lake Wheeler Rd. (SR 1371) with Penny Rd.(SR 1379), take Penny Rd. (only runs west) for a very short distance (maybe 1/8 mile), then bear right on to Yates Mill Pond Rd.(SR 1381). Pass a Wake Co. Recycling Site, (about another 1/8 mile) and turn right on to Golden Heights Dr.,an unpaved road. Drive about 1/4 mi. to the cemetery on the left in a patch of woods.

This road borders "Historic Yates Mill Park", and the cemetery is in a lovely serene setting, hidden from the hustle and bustle that exists a few miles away. A fence surrounds the graves and flowers are planted by the path leading to the gate.

I visited this cemetery and recorded from headstones all that was readable on Jun 20, 2007.

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.
