Augustus Church off of Durham Lake Rd in Brogden Township (partial listing)
Confederate graves  Most of the Confederate soldiers who died near Goldsboro were buried in various places.  Later, the bodies were moved to Willowdale Cemetery, where they were buried with one monument.  A list of those who were identified exists, and was published in the North Carolina Genealogical magazine within the past 5 years (sorry, but that's as close as I can get for you). There were about 800 names.  The information will be in the cemetery book the Genealogical Society is working on.
I hope this is helpful.    ---  Lynn Johnson

Cox/Coor graveyard uncovered and cleared by Mr. Seaton Howell on his property some 7 miles west of Goldsboro on the North side of Highway 70 West, Goldsboro, Wayne County, North Carolina.  Mr. Howell has very graciously cleared and made visible the headstones in this cemetery, which had been neglected and overgrown for many years.  He also gave me permission to look at and transcribe the headstones, and has no objection to my posting this transcription on this Wayne County GenWeb site.  Many of the graves are of the children and some grandchildren of Edmund Coor (1811-1895) and Anna Maria Cox Coor (1817-1880), who was his first wife.  Also buried here are the second wife of Edmund Coor, Adrianna (Ada) Hooks (1859-1923) and her second husband, Lonnie Dale (1867-1950).
