Halsey Cemetery

located in Piney Creek, Alleghany County, North Carolina

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:

RACHEL COBB
1762 - 1847
WIFE OF WM HALSEY

and

WILLIAM HALSEY
NEW JERSEY
PVT CAPT WM E. IMLAY'S 7 CO
REVOLUTIONARY WAR
MARCH 28 1760 FEB 21 1832

William Halsey Cemetery - Alleghany County, NC
Driving instructions submitted by adamsj@gwmail.utk.edu

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 the interstate.

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 Independence, VA.

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.
