This cemetery, which is on on Graveyard Island., can only be reached by walking 3 miles down train tracks or by boat. The train tracks are located at Old Whitney. This cemetery is to the north of Cemetery #1.
These graves were moved to Graveyard Island between 1915 and 1917 when Alcoa decided to dam the Yadkin River. I cannot find another name for the cemetery so am giving it a number.
From what I have researched on Graveyard Island is that there are 3 or more cemeteries on this Island. They were moved out of the way before they flooded the valley that is now Badin Lake..
I walked this cemetery Oct 03, 2003 and recorded all tombrocks.
