From Autryville, NC (NC Hwy 24) take North Gray St (SR-1414). N Gray St becomes Minnie Hall Rd (SR-1414) Go 2 2/10 miles to South River Rd (SR-1424). Turn left onto South River Rd. Go 3 3/10 miles to a dirt lane on the left beside a large oak tree and an old house. The cemetery is 3/10 mile down the dirt lane on the right.
This small family cemetery is located on private property owned by Mr. & Mrs. M. F. Starling. One should obtain permission to visit it.
The cemetery dates back to about 1839, exact date it was established is unknown. It is maintained by the Starling family, and it is in good condition.
This is a complete transcription of all existing stones and markers, which I surveyed and photographed in October of 2007.
