Our sincere THANKS to Sharon
Gray for allowing us to display her photos of the Halsey Cemetery,
located in Piney Creek, NC, on the Halsey
Family Resource Page. Our THANKS also to James
Brown for submitting the photos.
(the following note is from Sharon Gray)
It is located on Phipps Dairy Road which is a gravel road. It is a
little remote and is actually next to a barn. It is fenced and well
maintained, partially because the Phipps are descendants of William
and Rachel Halsey. There are some unmarked stone slabs next to William
and Rachel's stones. Their son, William, remained on that land and he
is buried in the cemetery. The other tombstones are dated in the
1800s. Because the stones are stained and difficult to read in the
pictures, here is what they say:
1762 - 1847
WIFE OF WM HALSEY
PVT CAPT WM E. IMLAY'S 7 CO
MARCH 28 1760 FEB 21 1832

Please feel free to post my directions. They start
if you are traveling south on I-81. William and Rachel are my 4th
great grandparents. My parents have lived in Piney Creek on the farm
next to the Phipps farm since 1961. My mother's maiden name is Halsey.
Take interstate 81 to Marion, Va. Take Highway 16 exit (I do not know
the exit number.) At the end of the exit ramp you turn left back under
Follow Hwy. 16 for about 25-30 throught the mountains. Hwy. 16 becomes
Hwy. 58 in Volney, VA. Keep going straight toward Mouth of Wilson and
Follow Hwy. 58 about 5-6 miles and you will see signs for North
Carolina. Take a right onto Hwy. 113 and it will lead you across the
NC state line (one mile). About 1/2 past the state line, take a left
onto Hwy. 93.
Follow Hwy. 93 for about 1/2 miles and turn left onto Phipps Dairy
Road. It is the first left on Hwy. 93. Take the road to the top of the
hill and it will turn left. Keep following the road and the cemetery
is located on the left.
