|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
This is all that is left of the small (0.0983 acres) Upchurch Family Cem.
Per Wake County records and plats 0.03 acres was taken from the original cemetery and is now under the east side of Davis Dr. and the sidewalk as well as the empty buffer zone.
Sat images from 1999 show headstones in the area now under Davis Dr., the sidewalk and the buffer zone.
With empty buffer zone, sidewalk and roadway taken into account it appears that possibly half the original burials were effected by the expansion of Davis Drive.
It is unknown at this time if the burials were moved.
There is evidence in the area of destroyed markers.
In 2004 12 of the 23+ burials were moved due to the road construction to Montlawn Cemetery in Raleigh, NC. Each of the 12 individuals have new headstones - the original headstones were reportedly buried with them.
