Contributed by Ann Brosnahan, Mar 04, 2006, last edited Apr 05, 2010 [email@example.com]. Total records = 30.This cemetery is located on Duraleigh Rd. (SR 1664) at the intersection of Burwell Rollins Circle, which is the entrance to Olde Raleigh Subdivision, about 1/2 mile north of the intersection of Duraleigh Rd. and Edward's Mill Rd. (SR 3009).
Finch Cemetery is barely visible from the road, with a fine brick wall shielding it from view. You can park in the small courtyard in front of the guard house. It contains .09 acre and is no longer in use.
I am a direct descendant of the interred, and have gained ownership of this cemetery. I am currently busy in the process of restoring it. Permission to enter the cemetery is required.
Surnames that we know of buried in this cemetery are Beasley, Christenbury, Finch, Jones, Pleasants, Pollard, Maynard, Spikes and Watkins.
A large fallen tree has been removed and headstones cleaned, making it possible to add names, dates, and correct any prior errors. I walked through the cemetery and recorded from the headstones. Additional information from Family Bibles, Census, and NC Newspapers and Family Members.
