|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
The cemetery was destroyed when Vail
Ave. was opened for traffic.
The stones were thrown into a gully
and covered with 15 feet of dirt.
When the nurses home for Merch Hospital
was being built and excavating done for
the basement four of these stones were
found. The hospital gave the stones to
the City Council.
Mr. Victor Shaw was mayor and with his
consent of the council, the four stones
were place in a concrete base in the
cemetery behind the First Presbyterian
Church in Charlotte.
They can be found to the left on the
first walk as you enter the iron gate.
Eight more stones were recovered.
