|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
The name of this cemetery (Holt Cemetery) was given in published obituaries from the 1950-60's era for some of the people interred in this cemetery. No signage was found at the cemetery.
Information found on this cemetery by Nora A. Moore and Marie Levi in April 1969,, "The Holt Cemetery is in the Baldwin Comminity approximately one fourth mile directly east of the Hester Cemetery and about five miles east of the Fayetteville City Square . . . The Holt Cemetery has some sixty (60) graves which are marked by sandstones with no identification. It is believed some of these were pre-civil war graves."
Note: as of January 2013, this cemetery has a barbed wire fence surrounding most of it. The cemetery is very overgrown with briars, leaves, small brush, and trees. Many downed trees have broken some of the stones. There are also many graves with fieldstones containing no names. Photos were taken of all gravestones we could locate containing names, but some of the stones broken in half we were unable to find the other half. If visiting this cemetery, advise going in the winter months because of snakes, ticks, and other crawling creatures.
To reach this cemetery, from Fayetteville take Hwy 16E to the Baldwin Community, turn left (north) on Highbush Avenue. This takes you through the Blueberry Meadows subdivision. The cemetery is located at the back (northwest corner) behind the subdivision. There is a trail off of the half cul-de-sac on Highbush Avenue. The cemetery is located behind the clump of trees and undergrowth at the GPS coordinates given below.
