Green Level Church Rd./Ferson Rd.. Green Level, NC
Lat: 35° 47' 37"N, Lon: 78° 55' 08"W
Contributed by Shirley Olson, Oct 09, 2004 [firstname.lastname@example.org]. Total records = 5.Dir: From the intersection of Hwy. 55 and Green Level West Rd.(SR 1615), Apex, take Green Level Rd. West 1.7 miles to the "Y" of Green Level West Rd. and Beaver Dam Rd. Take Beaver Dam Rd. .2 miles to the stop sign at the intersection of Beaver Dam and Green Level Church Rd.(SR 1600). Turn right onto Green Level Church Rd., and go 2. 4 mi. (approx.) to the point where Ferson St. intersects from the right. On your left, set back Green Level Church Rd. is a large white farmhouse in ruins.
A rough driveway, overgrown with weeds will bring you up to the house and continues beyond to the ruins of a barn. The farm land is overgrown with weeds and beyond that, a little way into the woods, is the remains of this cemetery. This is an abandoned cemetery.
I found this cemetery through Rosemary Neal (thank you Rosemary) who spotted the legal notice in the "Apex Herald" announcing the intention to relocate the remains of those buried here to Green Level Baptist Church Cemetery and the plan to deposit the record of the reinterment with the Wake County Health Dept., which has the responsibility for maintaining records of moved graves. The notice in the newspaper had the wrong intersection, Person St., instead of Ferson St. There appear to be about 7 unmarked graves in addition to these.
