|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Located in Leaksville Township on Church Street in Eden, across from the First Wesleyan Church. The Old Spray Cemetery has been used as a community cemetery for a number of years. The earliest grave marker found is dated 1875. Most of the markers are dated prior to 1905, and the latest one is dated 1920. Many of the earliest graves are for the Robertson family. Another cemetery about 2 miles away was once called Spray Cemetery, or N. Spray Cemetery, but is now known as Woodlawn Cemetery, so these two cemeteries are often confused.
It has always been up to the community to maintain this cemetery. In 2010, the Eden Preservation Society, along with help from Boy Scout Troop 567, cleaned up the cemetery. As of June 2011, the City of Eden's Community Appearance Team have taken over this responsibility. A fence and sign at the entrance have been recently installed by volunteers.
