Cemetery: North Fork Baby Cemetery
Rick Re: North Fork Baby Cemetery.
30Jan2001. Personal email --->"Directions: Going south from
Arbovale on Rt. 28 turn left on North Fork Road. Continue going east
until you come to a fork in the road, taking the left fork which is
still North Fork Road. Continue around a curve to the left and on the
next curve take the dirt road on the next curve and go straight. Continue
down this dirt road several hundred yards. Watch the telephone/electric
poles on the left side of the road and when the wires cross the road
to the pole on the right side of the road the cemetery is directly up
the hill on the left side of the road - up on a flat section of the
hill. This cemetery is directly across the road from the old "Snead"
Place. Mr. Sneadager rented the home from R.W.Brown until the home burned.
We (the Johnnie Brown and Ethel (Brown) Higgins family) placed a stone
at the cemetery and called it "North Fork Baby Cemetery". I know that
Roscoe Brown had a still born daughter and son buried there; his brother
Henry had two babies buried there (although someone told me that one
is buried in Arbovale); Robert and Hester Brown have twin babies buried
there. There appears to be two dozen graves. I do not believe all the
babies were all of the Brown family. I believed that the people of North
Fork used this "Baby" graveyard to bury their young children. I have
been told that the oldest child was no older than 11 years old. There
appears to be no writing on any of the creek rock used to mark the graves.
[Note: watch out for the Rattlesnakes and this is no joke!!!] "
