From Ancestry.com article about Ivey Stafford:
"There are many unmarked graves in what is now known as the Rowton Cemetery, located about one mile northwest of Norman in the Lick Creek area. This is one of the oldest recorded cemeteries in Montgomery County.
Buried in some of these unmarked graves are Ivey Stafford, his son William W., his wife Martha Jane Smith Stafford and some of their children.
Ivey, born about 1788 in North Carolina, is the son of Josiah II, and Sarah Ivey Stafford, not the Josiah III, buried at County Line Cemetery. Josiah II, was the son of Samuel and Naomi Stafford of Pasquotank County, North Carolina. Samuel was the son of Sarah Stafford, born about 1698, in Tiverton, Newport County, Rhode Island, and the grandson of Josiah I, born by 1662, and Sarah Lake, daughter of David and Sarah Earle Stafford of Rhode Island. This Josiah I, was born to Sylvester prior in 1618 in Suffolk, England, and Elizabeth Norton Stover, daughter of Henry and Margaret Cromer of Cape Ned."
