From the intersection of US # 1 and NC Hwy # 55 (W. Williams St.)in Apex, go north 1.3 miles on Hwy. # 55 to the cemetery on the east side of the road. Drive in and park. This is the easiest way to locate the cemetery since it fronts on Hwy. # 55 and the back boundary is on W. Moore St.
The cemetery is the property of the Town of Apex NC. Prior to being acquired by Apex the cemetery was known as Hillsborough 2. Burials are not restricted to Apex residents, but town residents receive special consideration. The cemetery contains 5.34 acres of gently rolling land, and is well groomed and carefully maintained. There is room for more burials.
This is a large cemetery that was transcribed in sections. The older sections have heastones, the later graves are marked with tablets. For the sake of orderly recording I have assigned numbers to the various sections of the cemetery. These numbered sections will not remain as such in the final alphabetized transcription.
However, to assist in locating graves, I will retain a copy of the cemetery with the numbered sections and the graves located within those sections. This will reduce the physical search area considerably.
I walked the cemetery on Sep 09, 2005 and recorded all that was readable from existing tombstones and markers.
