Contributed by Shirley Olson, Mar 12, 2002 [shirley32olson@yahoo.com]. Total records = 14.

From Raleigh take the beltline (Hwy. 440, US 1, and Hwy. 64 W) west to the Apex (Hwy. 55) exit on US 1, (Williams St.) Turn left at the light and go about 1 mile to a left turn onto Sunset Lake Rd., (SR. 1301) Go about 1 mile to the intersection of Stephenson Rd., (SR. 1302) which enters Sunset Lake Rd. from the left. The cemetery is on the NW corner.
This cemetery is in poor condition. The stumps of large oak trees dot the grounds which are unkempt. There is no fence or landscaping, and there are obviously more graves here than tombstones. Sunken spots indicate unmarked graves. This section of Sunset Lake Rd. is surrounded by trailer parks and very close to heavy industrial development. It is an abandoned cemetery with an uncertain future.

I surveyed this cemetery on 11 Mar 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.
