|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
The cemetery is not located beside the present church in Linden. To find the cemetery, go north on US 401 about 1/8 mile past the NC 217 turnoff to Linden, or go south 1/4 mile from the Lower Little River bridge on US 401. On the east side of US 401 is a dirt driveway between two stone pillars. This winds back through several fields and eventually comes out at the cemetery.
Sardis Church was organized May 5, 1816, the first building known as Hodges' Meeting House, was located on the opposite side of the ravine, and nearer the river. The second building, probably erected in 1830, stood at the southwest corner of the cemetery. In 1916 the third building was erected at Linden, NC.
