Contributed by Shirley Olson, May 03, 2004 [firstname.lastname@example.org]. Total records = 3.Dir. : Take Exit # 287, Interstate # 40, and Harrison Ave (SR 1652), Wake Co., NC, Go north 4/10 mi. through the entrance of Umstead State Park to a paved parking lot, and park over on the right side. The Loblolly Trail runs from the right side of the parking lot. Walk 1/10 mi. on the Loblolly Trail to the cemetery on your right.
There is a rusted fence surrounding the graves and many fallen trees leaning over the cemetery. Most of the grave markers have crumbled or have been rendered unreadable. The cemetery is not endangered because it is located in Umstead Park, but it is seriously deteriorated and could use some maintenance, especially removal of the large trees hanging over the fence. There appears to be at least 7 graves, only 3 are positively marked. This is an abandoned cemetery no longer in use.
