This cemetery is on the south side of US 136, east of Pittsboro. It
is visible from the road.

This cemetery is fenced, mowed, but not maintained. There is an extreme
amount of growth, especially yuccas, around and enveloping the stones.
The west side is almost completely overgrown. The west row of gravestones
is disappearing into the woods. Many stones are not mowed around. There
are also many fallen stones. Lots of tablets are scattered around and
are sinking face up. Large stack stones have fallen (or been pushed
by vandals) and allowed to sink into the ground. A couple have fallen
toward the ravine and may roll down. Towards the road there are many flat
concrete stones embedded in the ground, perhaps to mark unmarked graves.
This cemetery is in very poor condition. The noxious growth needs to
be cut back and serious restoration needs to be undergone to prevent further
damage to the stones.
