Graveyard Island Cemetery #3
Stanly County, North Carolina

Lat: 35 27' 33"N, 80 07' 24"W

Contributed by Brandy H. Hartsell, Nov 05, 2003 [branandjohn@hotmail.com]. Total records = 1.

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 west of Cemetery 1 & 2.

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.
