|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Gallimore Family Cemetery is located in Silver Hill Township, four-tenths mile off Hwy 47 on Bethany Church Road. Property currently owned by private family member.
The cemetery had previously been identified as the 'Gallimore Family Cemetery' in several Genealogical Journals from Davidson County due to the finding of several Gallimore headstones - for Jesse Wright and his wife, Ruth Wright Gallimore; however, it is physically located on on what was formerly the Richard Wright, Jr. family property.
The original cemetery is now a pasture, but is thought to contain as many as 25 graves only indicated by slate markers or stacked rocks. This information is contained in the Cemetery Record of Davidson County, NC, Vol III, page 151.
The original headstones of Ruth [Wright] Gallimore and Jesse Gallimore were moved to outside the fence and lay flat near the road. Some difficulty in finding them.
Based on 'generally accepted' information regarding the Richard Wright, Sr. and Jr. families, I believe this site is also where BOTH Richard Wright, Sr. and Richard Wright, Jr. and other family members are buried, inclusive of Jesse and Ruth. No other markers are in the cemetery.
