Penny Cemetery
Wake County, North Carolina

Lat: 35° 43' 05"N, Lon: 78° 41' 39"W
Middle Creek Township

Contributed by Shirley Olson, Jun 22, 2007 [shirley32olson@yahoo.com]. Total records = 6.

At the intersection of Lake Wheeler Rd. (SR 1371) with Penny Rd.(SR 1379), take Penny Rd. (only runs west) for a very short distance (maybe 1/8 mile), then bear right on to Yates Mill Pond Rd.(SR 1381). Pass a Wake Co. Recycling Site, (about another 1/8 mile) and turn right on to Golden Heights Dr.,an unpaved road. Drive about 1/4 mi. to the cemetery on the left in a patch of woods.

This road borders "Historic Yates Mill Park", and the cemetery is in a lovely serene setting, hidden from the hustle and bustle that exists a few miles away. A fence surrounds the graves and flowers are planted by the path leading to the gate.

I visited this cemetery and recorded from headstones all that was readable on Jun 20, 2007.
