Jones, Turner, Booker, Adams, Stewart Cemetery
Wake County, North Carolina

Sunset Lake Rd.
Holly Springs NC

Lat: 3539'19"N, Lon: 7847'26"W

Contributed by Shirley Olson, Mar 11, 2002 [shirley32olson@yahoo.com]. Total records = 43.

From the beltline (Hwy 440, US 1, and Hwy 64W) head west to the Apex (Hwy 55) exit on US 1, (Williams St. ). Turn left at the light, going towards Holly Springs and Fuquay-Varina. Go about 2 1/2 miles to a light and a left turn on to Holly Springs Rd. (SR 1152). About 1 1/2 miles up the road turn right onto Sunset Lake Rd., (SR 1301) and go about 1/2 mile to the cemetery on the right side of the road just past the entrance to Sunset Ridge Subdivision, Kenmont Dr.

Not too long ago this was a rural neighborhood with a few African American homeowners, all long time residents. The land was virtually untouched by change. Sunset Lake was the location of a hunting club, and it was an area of great natural beauty.

Relentless growth in Wake Co. caught up with this overlooked part of the county a few years ago and the construction of a country club and other expensive neighborhoods has changed this place forever. Newly paved roads, sewer lines, schools and shopping centers have sprouted all around the cemetery which sits on the frontage of beautiful meadow. Way in the back of this property there is another smaller cemetery.
