Location:  Hwy. U.S. 220 Business North at City Limits of Stoneville, NC 27048

In trees on left side of road going north.

This is, in reality, three separate cemeteries -  Grogan/Roberts Family CemeteryNathaniel Dodd Family Cemetery and the Rhodes/Joyce Cemetery -one just outside of the tree line, one inside a rusting fenced area and the last in the trees to the North of both of these.  All three are within fifty feet of each other.  Graves are on private property of a Mr. Holland, who gave permission for the collection of this information.
